Costa Adeje Beaches
Costa Adeje Beaches
Location: On the south coast, Costa Adeje.
Brief description: Golden sand and turquoise waters surrounded by a chic promenade.
Services nearby: High class bars, cafés and restaurants, changing and shower facilities, underground car park and on-street. We especially like the boutique design-label shops in the Playa del Duque Commercial Centre.
Good for: Treating yourself to a bit of luxury, pamper yourself with a massage on the beach, swimming in crystal clear waters.
We like: The exclusive feel to Playa del Duque, the extra thick mattresses on the sun beds, the man selling donuts on the beach and the on-beach massage service....nice!
We don’t like: This kind of exclusivity comes with a price.
Driving directions: Come off the TF-1 at Fañabé/Torviscas, come off the slip road and beach is signposted.
Location: Puerto Colón/San Eugenio
Brief description: Nice stretch of golden sand in front of a busy promenade. See neighbouring island La Gomera on a clear day.
Services nearby: Loads of shopping, bars, cafés, restaurants and supermarkets. Tiered shopping centre with fast food outlets and snack bars.
Good for: Relaxing and swimming because the water is calm, great for kids.
What we like: The fun inflatables and trampolines which are fixed out to in the shallow waters. Great for kids young and old, children get a lifejacket. It costs €5 for one hour or €10 for the whole day.
What we don’t like: Because it’s so popular it can get a bit crowded at times. Surrounding tiered shopping centre looks a bit dated.
Driving directions: Come off the TF-1 at San Eugenio, take a left over the motorway bridge and follow the road. Go over the first roundabout and you’ll find some on-street parking.
Location: South-west coast
Brief description: Known as ‘the golden beach’ it stretches through two popular resorts, lovely calm waters, plenty of sun beds and other facilities.
Services nearby: Several shopping centres, restaurants, fast food outlets.
Good for: Water sport activities, people who like to ‘do stuff’.
What we like: Blue Flag beach means it has excellent facilities, including access points for wheelchair users, has pristine waters and sand.
What we don’t like: The sun beds get snapped up quickly, expect a far few people on any given day, especially in high season.
Driving directions: Exit the TF-1 at Fañabe/Torviscas. Come off the slip road and follow the signs for the beach.
