Costa Adeje is the heart of Southern Tenerife and it won’t be long before this sprawling beach paradise engulfs La Caleta and Playa de Las Americas entirely. Use our interactive map of Costa Adeje to check out some of the best places to eat, attractions to see and beaches to head for each day.

You can get from one side of Costa Adeje to the other in under an hour on foot, but with buses running through the town and taxis at every corner, getting from A to B is very quick and easy.

We highly recommend taking a walk along the coast, strolling through the sandy beaches and along the restaurant lined promenades to get a feel for what Costa Adeje is really about at the beginning of your holiday.

A little north of Costa Adeje lies the tiny village of Adeje – and all the culture, tradition and art of the region that’s missing from Costa Adeje itself. Here you can enjoy: 

Barranco del Infierno

A waterfall ravine that’s accessible by a great hiking trail! Well worth the €8.50 to access the track and take a tour up to one of Tenerife’s most beautiful natural spots. Click here to get your begginer’s guide to Barranco del Inferno!

Casa Fuerte de Adeje

A historical strong house that holds traditional events and exhibitions. Check out CAFU to find out what’s on.

Sacred Museum and Plaza España in Adeje

With lovely views from the square and interesting exhibitions in the museum, this is a must for anyone who loves history and art. There are many events held here, particularly at Christmas!

There’s also a cultural centre, several traditional cafes, restaurants, bars and the beautiful Iglesia de Santa Úrsula church. To get to Adeje, you can take a bus from Fanabe Plaza. Look for numbers 417, 447, 460 or 473.


Costa Adeje Circuits

If you’re short on time, or just unsure how to put together a day in Costa Adeje, try these circuits. They’ll guide you through the day, stopping at all the best places along the way.

The Beach Circuit

  1. Head to La Caleta! Take a taxi or catch the 467 bus. This is the starting point of your leisurely beach circuit. If you’re peckish, stop for a snack at Panaderia-Cafeteria for a coffee and slice of cake (opens 7am).
  2. Start your leisurely stroll back, walking along these beaches:
    1. Playa de la Enramada
    2. Mirador Stone Pebble beach (have a go at stacking some)
    3. Playa El Beril
    4. Playa El Duque (stop for a break on the sun loungers)
  3. If there’s still time, you can continue and finish your beach walk at Playa de Fanabe. For dinner, we recommend freshening up at your hotel and then heading to Restaurante Las Rocas (very pricey and perfect for celebrating the day) or Restaurante Sebastian for some delicious tapas.

Bonus: if you have time in the day, don’t forget to check our El Duque Castle for beach views and stay on Playa el Duque to watch the sunset over the beach.
