  1. General information

Costa Adeje is a stretch of coastline and also a district of the municipality of Adeje in the south-east of Tenerife. This region has the sunniest climate on the island. In addition to the beaches of Costa Adeje there are other attractions to be found here, which may be of interest to holidaymakers: the nature reserve, Barranco del Infierno (‘Hell Canyon’ in English) offers a wide range of different landscapes and is an attractive destination. The church of Santa Úrsula and Casa Fuerte are part of the island's cultural heritage and are worth a visit. And last but not least there's plenty of fun to be had at Siam Park, one of Europe's most popular water parks.

The area surrounding the beaches of Costa Adeje is characterised by the high density of hotels and holiday apartments, which include a considerable number of high-class and luxury resorts. However, the accommodation on offer is wide-ranging so there is something to suit almost every taste and budget here. The same is true of food and drinks: if you spend your beach holiday on Costa Adeje, you won't have to visit the same establishment twice, even if you stay for several weeks.

Some of the island's most popular beaches are located on Costa Adeje. Almost all of them consist of fine, light sand and offer excellent bathing conditions, good infrastructure and a wealth of water sports and dining options. The long, well-kept beach promenade, which is typical for this holiday resort, connects all the beaches of Costa Adeje and extends further to the neighbouring resorts of Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos. Together with Costa Adeje these make up the biggest holiday region in Tenerife.

Most of the beaches on Costa Adeje have been awarded the blue flag, the seal of approval for beaches that are particularly ecological and visitor-friendly. There's nothing lacking here: families in particular feel at home and there is good provision for security and accessibility. The range of water sports on offer here is also extremely satisfactory. Although the conditions are not particularly suited to windsurfing, kiting or surfing, there are plenty of other ways to have fun in the water, such as jet skiing, banana boating, flyboarding and more.
