It's not hard to understand why people choose Costa Adeje holidays time and time again. This stretch of coast in the south west of Tenerife is the perfect combination of laid back and lively: the night life is there if you want it, but if you'd prefer to spend your trip relaxing at an exclusive five-star hotel on the beach, then Costa Adeje is at your service.
Tenerife is the biggest of the Canary Islands, which sit in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of North Africa and enjoy an “eternal spring”. Highlights of the island include the stunning peak of Mount Teide, whale and dolphin watching cruises, water parks, excellent shopping, water sports off the volcanic black sand beaches and the more than ample supply of sunshine under which to simply relax, snooze, read, swim, and top up the tan.
The popular Costa Adeje area stretches from the edge of party central Playa de las Americas in the south to La Caleta, which is a quiet fishing village with a rocky beach, passing through the harbour of Puerto Colon, Pueblo Torviscas, upmarket Fanabe and chic Playa del Duque on the way. Families love holidays in Costa Adeje due to the excellent beaches and easy access to water parks, while couples often appreciate the quiet spots along the coast and groups tend to congregate around the clubs and pubs of Veronicas in Playa de las Americas.
Whoever you are travelling with, your holidays in Costa Adeje can be underway within an hour of leaving the arrivals terminal. The coast is within easy reach of Tenerife South Airport (TFS), which is about a four to five hour flight from the UK. As car hire is relatively inexpensive, hiring a vehicle for the duration of your stay could prove a cost-effective way to travel to and from resort and explore the island of Tenerife during your holiday.
