Top 5 Things To See and Do in Costa Adeje

One of Tenerife's most popular resorts, Costa Adeje is situated on the south-western part of the island and offers so much for visitors to see and do. The best way to get your holiday started is with Holiday Extras' Costa Adeje Airport Transfers – our low-cost and hassle-free airport-to-hotel shuttle service.

1. Beaches aplenty

One thing you certainly won't lack for during your Costa Adeje stay is a gorgeous beach on which to relax or play. Arguably, this part of the island has the pick of the bunch, with three Blue Flag beaches: Playa del Duque, Playa de Torviscas and Playa de Troya. And there are many more to fine sandy expanses to choose from, including Playa de Fañabé, Playa de Puerto Colón, Playa del Bobo and Punta Blanca.

2. Barranco del Infierno

Located on the fringes of Corona Forestal Natural Park is Barranco del Infierno, a gorgeous quirk of nature that is home to some of the island's most exotic flora and fauna. To take full advantage of this spectacular part of Tenerife, follow the hiking trail that takes you through this ravine to the island's tallest waterfall. The gorge is limited to 300 travellers per day so book early to avoid disappointment.

3. La Caleta National Park

If the Barranco del Infierno trail whets your appetite for more treks, then head in the direction of La Caleta. This rugged expanse offers the chance to get a good look at the island's otherworldly, volcanic vistas, and spectacular views out across the Atlantic Ocean. Here, it's possible to walk for miles without seeing another person.

4. Club Náutico Puerto Colon

The quaint little harbour of Puerto Colón is a good place to take part in a wide range of water sports or enjoy a boat trip. It's also a lovely place to take a stroll, particularly along the promenade that runs from Costa Adeje to Playa de las Américas. Alternatively, pitch up at a café or bar and observe an array of boats and yachts sailing to and fro.

5. Centro Comercial Plaza del Duque

Even on a sun-kissed island, a little bit of retail therapy can be just the ticket. If you do find yourself hankering for a spot of shopping, visit the contemporary and well-appointed Centro Comercial Plaza del Duque. Even if you're not looking to buy, you can still take in its wide range of high-end boutiques that fill three floors.
