The popular Costa Adeje is located north of Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos on the western coastline of Tenerife.
Attractions & Things to do in Costa Adeje
This beautiful location is just one of the fantastic resorts that attracts millions of tourists each year.
Costa Adeje is well known for having some of the best weather on the island. The ominous presence of the Mount Teide Volcano acts as a shield from the colder northern winds which helps to keep the temperature warmer. Costa Adeje is perhaps more sophisticated than some of the other resorts but there is plenty on offer for everyone here of all ages.
This area boasts many luxury 5 star hotels (Gran Hotel pictured above) and the coast is littered with some of the finest restaurants on the island. Typically there are not many clubs and late night bars here but you are only a stones throw away from Las Américas and Los Cristianos if your fancy more nightlife.
