The centrally located bathing bay of Puerto Colón, also known as Playa La Pinta, on the Costa Adeje has plenty to offer for children and adults alike. The fine, light sand leads gently into the water, which starts off nice and shallow, and children will find lots of ways to enjoy themselves - there is even a playground, including slides and a trampoline, in the water. On the adjacent beach promenade there are lots of restaurants and shops selling small souvenirs and beach accessories. Those interested in water sports activities such as jet skiing, diving and parasailing, will also be happy here.
Playa Puerto Colón - Sheltered bathing bay with lots on offer
Playa Puerto Colón, also known as Playa La Pinta, is one of many beaches along the Costa Adeje. It is just a few minutes' walk along the beach promenade from its more famous neighbouring beach, Playa Fañabé, where there are more and cheaper places to park than at Playa Puerto Colón.
The beach lies well sheltered from the wind and waves, right next to the small harbour to which it owes its name. The fine sand shimmers in shades of yellow and grey. To the right it is sheltered by big black rocks and to the left it borders the marina.
There are plenty of loungers and sun umbrellas to hire on the beach and a few palm trees enhance the scenery. On the broad beach promenade there is a wide range of restaurants, bars and small shops selling souvenirs and beach accessories.
Several water sports operators can be found here on the promenade and around the harbour. They offer a broad range of activities from jet skiing, parasailing and diving to catamaran sailing and flyboarding. For children there is a large trampoline, a slide and other floating play equipment - in fact, Playa Puerto Colón has a water playground!
Thanks to the wide range of amenities and the good location, the beach is ideal for families with small children and those who don't want to walk far to get a bite to eat or treat themselves to a refreshing drink. And if that's still not enough, or if you are happy to walk quite a long way, you can get to all the other beaches of the Costa Adeje and Las Américas from here, along the beautiful beach promenade.
