Blue Flag beaches, luxury hotels and designer boutiques put holidays to Costa Adeje in a class of their own. No wonder the Beckhams like to come here.
A class act
In resort terms, Costa Adeje is a relative newbie but it’s already a bit of an ‘It’-destination on Tenerife’s south coast. Backdropped by volcanic Mount Teide, it’s all 5-star hotels, high-end villas and luxury boutiques – the Beckhams are regulars here, apparently. It’s a fairly laid-back place, but you’ve got party-hard Playa de las Palmas next door plus one of the world’s biggest waterparks right on your doorstep.
A duo of beaches
Costa Adeje has 2 Blue Flag beaches. You’ve got Playa de Fanabe with its dark, volcanic strip, and also Playa del Duque – the golden sand here was imported from the Sahara. Whichever one you go for, you’ll find plenty of sunloungers plus a good line-up of bars and kiosks behind you on the promenade.
It might not go full throttle like its hardcore neighbour, but Costa Adeje can still hold its own on the nightlife front. You’ve got waterfront restaurants, live music pubs and cabaret places around the resort. And as this is one of Tenerife’s top family resorts, you’ll find that when it comes to kids, everywhere is very welcoming.
Close to Playa de las Americas
Ten minutes’ drive and you’re in Playa de las Americas. On the activity front, you can bungee jump at Sky Park or take a boat ride out to see dolphins. If you fancy a walk, you can stroll to nearby Los Cristianos for a coffee at one of the pavement cafés. You should head back for sunset, though, when the bars and clubs on Veronicas Strip rev up for action.
