Costa Adeje - The Place
Costa Adeje is a modern resort providing everything necessary for a stress free holiday. It has a wide range of accommodation from luxury hotels to budget apartments. Costa Adeje, framed by Mount Teide, is an attractive area that is well maintained and planted with many shrubs, flowers and palm trees.
The large beach, Playa de Fanabe, is composed of coarse grey volcanic sand which slopes gently into the sea. Care must always be taken in the water as this is the Atlantic Ocean and there can be strong undercurrents. A good variety of water sports is available from the beach and the marina. The clarity of the water provides ideal conditions for scuba diving and snorkelling.
Bars and cafes line the beach front offering daylong refreshments and evening entertainment.
There are a good number of shops and a market but if this is insufficient there are many more in neighbouring Playa de las Americas.
