Costa Adeje has roughly seven kilometres of coastline with seven beaches. Bordered by a palm-fringed promenade lined with restaurants, bars, upmarket hotels and designer boutiques; the glitz feels far removed from the British ‘pie and pint pubs’ and gaudy souvenir shops that once characterised large swathes of Playa de Las Americas.
Costa Adeje is very much the face of a new, progressive Tenerife. In efforts to combat its reputation for cheap package holidays garnered over the 1980s, the Tenerife government has invested millions in developing the southern coastline.
- Tenerife has the third largest island volcano in the world - Mount Teide
- The Tenerife flag is the same as Scotland's.
