On the southern coast of Tenerife is where you’ll find the upmarket resort of Costa Adeje. It’s an incredibly popular area for people to visit, whether it’s just for a family holiday or a place to call home. Thanks to the sandy beaches - which have been dubbed some of the best within the Canary Islands - high-class entertainment options and vast array of places to wine and dine, there’s no wonder Costa Adeje is fast becoming one of the most sought-after destinations in the entire region. With so much to see and do close by, it can be difficult to know where to start. And that’s why we’ve outlined our top picks of things to do in and around Costa Adeje.
There’s a choice of more than 10 beaches for you to visit in Costa Adeje, leaving you spoilt for choice. The best bit is that not one, but two of them have the Blue Flag certification, which essentially means they’re some of the best on the island. One is a dark volcanic strip mixed with pale sand that you’ll find in Playa Fañabe, the other features golden-white sand and can be found in Playa del Duque. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids or a place to enjoy unspoilt views, you’re sure to find a beach that you’ll want to visit time and time again.
Whether it’s your first time in Costa Adeje or your 100th, Siam Water Park is a must. With Europe’s largest waterpark right on your doorstep, it’s something the entire family can enjoy together. From a quick dip in the pool to whizzing around down huge waterslides as fast as you can, there’s no wonder it’s been voted the number 1 water park in the world 5 years in a row.
If adventures are more your style, why not test yourself with a trek up Mount Teide. This stunning National Park is truly breathtaking, with the third highest volcano in the world being the focal point. Depending on how up to the challenge you are, there are two ways of getting to the summit. Climbing from the bottom to the top is an unforgettable experience, and one you’re not likely to encounter elsewhere. The single trail that sets off from Montaña Blanca by the road will take around 6 hours by foot. Alternatively, you can go as far as La Rambleta by cable car and then walk the Telesforo Bravo trail up to the summit.
To gain access to the top of Mount Teide, you’ll have to apply for a permit. However, if you’re unable to obtain one of the licences, you’ll still be able to sit back and take in the views by visiting the lookout points of La Fortaleza and Pico Viejo.
The great thing about Costa Adeje is that it’s a short journey to Los Cristianos, which is another incredibly popular resort in Tenerife. It’s one of the oldest and best-known areas on the entire island, with more than enough to keep you occupied on a nice day trip.

With so many bars, restaurants and cafes around the area, you’ll never want to cook a meal again. No matter your palate preferences - be it seafood, burgers, light bites or high-quality meat - you’re sure to find your favourite place to eat in Costa Adeje. From a relaxing evening meal with a loved one to celebrate a special occasion to a family-friendly pub, you’re never going to be short of places to eat or drink.
It’s not all about what you can do above sea level when you come to Costa Adeje. If you fancy doing something a little different with your spare time, explore the depths of the ocean on a submarine safari. By taking a trip to Marina San Miguel, which is around a 20-minute drive from Costa Adeje, you can delve deep underwater to watch the exotic sea life that Tenerife has to offer.
If all of that isn’t enough for you, then maybe the weather can persuade you to stay. Situated just off the west coast of Africa, Tenerife is in the perfect place to enjoy warm weather all year. Even in January when the temperatures drop off slightly, you’ll still experience an average high of 20ºC during the day. And when summer is in full swing, that will jump to a more than acceptable 28ºC.
Whether you’re looking for your next getaway, a holiday home or place to relocate to, Costa Adeje should be on your list of options. The possibilities are endless, especially as there’s so much for you to see and do, no matter how old you are.
Tenerife offers many good-value properties to buy. Back in 2007, the Spanish property boom saw house prices across the island drop massively. The hardest hit were properties in the rural north of the island. However, those in Costa Adeje only seemed to drop by around 10% at the time. Since then, prices have been steadily on the rise, so buying sooner rather than later may be a good thing.
