A holiday in Costa Adeje will let you enjoy Tenerife at its best. Families will love the Aqualand waterpark, but it’s the waters of the coastline that hold the most allure: sparkling and perfect, they're ideal for whale-watching tours. Playa Fanabe is a must-visit beach resort, and you can also bask in the sun at Playa del Duque. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants here to enjoy. And if you want more of a wild and hedonistic time, then you can easily go over to the nearby Playa de las Americas, with its bustling nightlife.
There are plenty of direct flights to Costa Adeje available – you'll be arriving at Tenerife South Airport, and carriers including Ryanair, Thomson Flights and flythomascook depart from a number of UK locations including Bournemouth, Manchester, London Luton and Bristol. It's always worth checking if your hotel offers complimentary airport transfers – if it doesn't, you can get one of the frequent buses to the Costa Adeje area, or if you'd like a swifter start to your Costa Adeje holiday you can always hop into a taxi.
One of the best ways to make the most of your trip is to hire a car in Costa Adeje. This will make it very easy to see much more than the beaches, and explore the wider Tenerife countryside. That said, if you're simply looking to sunbathe, enjoy the waters and stay near your hotel, you might not want the bother of getting your own vehicle. If you do want one, and are visiting during the busy summer period, it's recommended that you book your hire car well ahead of time.
As it's such a popular destination, you won't be surprised to know that there are plenty of hotels in Costa Adeje. While the area does have a reputation for being the pricier alternative to Playa de las Americas, you can still get a good deal if you have a good look around online and book as far in advance of your holiday as possible. Alternatively, try visiting in the early spring or late autumn to take advantage of any lower rates offered by the hotels.
While on holiday in Costa Adeje you'll probably come across some rather expensive bars and restaurants, but don't settle for them – keep exploring and you'll find somewhere to suit your budget, or ask locals for their advice. If you're on a night out, you may find cheaper drinks and foods available in the bustling Playa de las Americas resort which is very close by.
