Activity & Fun
Much of the daytime activity in the town takes place along its long promenades, with leisure areas for children, tourist information booths, bike rentals, ice cream parlours, terraces, restaurants, and all kinds of shops.
In Costa Adeje, there are two of the best water parks in all of Tenerife: Siam Park and Aqualand. Siam Park is the most spectacular – it is the largest water park in all of Spain and one of the best on the planet. It has countless attractions and is an essential visit while on the island. Aqualand is somewhat smaller but just as impressive and was the first to be opened on the island.
You can also visit Jungle Park, which is an enormous zoo and botanical garden.
In the sea
One the best attractions in the town is the cetacean colonies living along the coastline, so boat excursions are popular and highly recommended. On these excursions, you’ll be able to watch the different marine animals in total freedom, as well as enjoying a dip in the open seas [more information here].
Here you can also try different types of water sports: surfing, windsurfing, diving, etc. Of course, there are also other sports, and it is worth noting that one of the best golf courses on the island is located nearby.
Just next to the town is one of the most-visited natural sites on the island, the Barranco del Infierno, which is a magnificent unspoilt sight that any nature and adventure lover should visit.
In Costa Adeje, you’ll find well-serviced and accessible beaches that also have calm waves. Two of Tenerife’s most popular beaches are here: Playa del Duque, an enormous sandy beach in an idyllic setting; and Toviscas and Fañabé, two beaches at the foot of a spectacular promenade.
And that’s not forgetting the many great beaches that you’ll find along the southern coastline of Tenerife, which you can see here.
And these are just some of the many things to do in Tenerife.
Other than the nightclubs, shows, and parties that are organised by the various hotels in their own facilities, much of Costa Adeje’s nightlife takes place along the long promenades in the town, on the shores of the Atlantic and in a perfect climate.
