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