Costa Adeje Tenerife
Touristic Center in the South of Tenerife

Costa Adeje Tenerife, aka Costa de Adeje, is one of the newest and most prestigious resorts in Tenerife. The best accommodation options on the island are located in this southern area. Costa de Adeje has emerged in recent years to give place to a more exclusive and refined demand for tourism on the island. It is located right next to Playa de Las Americas in the municipality of Adeje.

Like other popular places in the south of the island, Costa Adeje Tenerife has also risen out of nowhere, mainly due to the demand for new hotel spaces near the sea and in a location with constant warm temperatures. Just as in the other towns and touristic places in the area the average temperature throughout the year is about  25 °C and with many sunny days.

Costa Adeje Tenerife is one of the three most important tourist resorts, along with Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas, also located in the south of the island, where you will find a wide range of hotels, tourist activities and relaxation opportunities. (Sun)bathing on these Tenerife beaches for this particular tourist spot is guaranteed mainly because of the very pleasant and all-year-round temperature, the calm of the waves, the clean sand and the quality of beach services provided. Just as a note, and as explained elsewhere in this guide, in contrast to the north of the island where water quality is excellent, the water in Costa de Adeje is quite heavy, so we recommend you to drink bottled water when holidaying in this part of the island.

Costa Adeje Tenerife - Hotels

The main hotels located in Costa de Adeje are newly built and in most cases more luxurious than in other places, with a special contact with nature and a peaceful atmosphere, helping  tourists to disconnect from their work routine. The construction of these hotels blends great imagination with good taste of a new generation of buildings. This can include those representing a small Canarian village or colonial style, or rather more exotic ones full of interesting Asian styles. All are very well cared for in every detail. The great thing about this lovely tourist spot is the fantastic feeling of relaxation. The promenade beginning in Playa de Las Vistas in Los Cristianos runs almost entirely around the coast down to Costa Adeje Tenerife.
