What should I pack for Costa Adeje?

The things that you'll need to take with you to Costa Adeje will very much depend on what you want to get out of your Tenerife stay. Before we look at the essentials, as well as other items that you might want to consider, please check out ourairport transfers.

If you're used to travelling to sunshine locations for your holidays, you'll pretty much know by memory what to take. Whether that is the case or your travelling to the Canaries for the first time, here's a handy list…

Beach attire

The great thing about sunny locations like Tenerife is that it isn't necessary to take a whole load of clothes, especially if you intend to frequent Costa Adeje's many fine beaches. A bathing suit or trunks, flip flops and a pair of sunglasses are pretty much all you'll need.

Sun protection

In all likelihood, it'll be very warm during your stay. Tenerife experiences typical highs of 29°C from July to September, and even in December and January, it can be as warm as 20°C. Therefore, make sure you pack some lightweight, light-coloured clothes and a sun hat. And don't forget to bring enough sunscreen, particularly if you intend to recharge your tan.

Tenerife treks

Adeje is a part of the island that provides plenty of opportunity for walking, whether that constitutes taking a pleasant seaside stroll or embarking on a challenging hillside trail. If you fancy a La Caleta National Park trek or a ravine hike at Barranco del Infierno, a sturdy, comfortable pair of walking boots is essential.

Island dress code

The majority of Tenerife's bars, cafés and restaurants don't enforce a dress code, which means that shorts, for instance, can be worn almost most anywhere. Bear in mind, though, if you intend to stay in a hotel (or visit one for an evening meal, perhaps), you may be required to wear more elegant attire.

Pre-empting precipitation

Tenerife does experience rainfall during the year, but not very much and rarely for too long, with December tending to bear the brunt. Just to be on the safe side, you might want to consider packing a pair of shoes or trainers. And just in case there's a slight chill in the air, a pair of long trousers and a cardigan, sweater or light jacket might not go amiss.
