Adeje - Turismo en Tenerife - Tourism in Tenerife

This municipality is located on the southwest of Tenerife. Recently, the coast, known as Costa Adeje, has undergone a major development of its hotel infrastructure, which is of an extremely high quality and where the tourist facilities have endowed the area with everything it needs to ensure that it retains its great beauty. Under its administration lie some of the island´s main tourist resorts, such as San Eugenio, Fañabé, Playa del Duque and part of the very popular Playa de Las Américas.
An average annual temperature of 23 degrees centigrade and full day- and night-time leisure facilities add to the appeal of this southern zone. The area has a surprising wealth of marine fauna, with one of the world´s most important colonies of cetaceans. Pilot whales, dolphins and other species of marine mammals can be seen off its shores, providing a natural spectacle that can be viewed from the numerous boats that offer excursions to observe them swimming in their natural habitat. 
Two championship level golf courses complete the range of leisure activities on offer in the area.

Not just a tourist slogan, it is true to say that the weather on our island is always good. The special geographic location of Tenerife and the occurrence of a series of factors in the area, including the continual caress of the trade winds, provide for pleasant average temperatures all year round. It is not cold in winter, yet the heat in summertime is not suffocating.

During the four seasons, the thermometer generally fluctuates between eighteen and thirty degrees.

Health care and safety

Tenerife has always been a very secure island where the visitor is received with warmth, friendliness and hospitality.

Costa Adeje want their visitors to enjoy a pleasant and relaxing holiday and aside from amplifying the police and vigilance corps, we have just inaugurated the “Complete Security School of Adeje”, that is a multidisciplinary training centre, which is directed towards the professional collective groups working in the security sector: police, firemen, lifesavers, and civil protection, businessmen and the people in general etc. This pioneering project in the Canaries, shows once again how the Town Hall of Adeje is involved in the security for our visitors and our neighbours. 

The Quality QUOSI System is a new modernization Plan of the working system of the Local Police Corps of Adeje, which creates an agreement of commitments between the townspeople and the local police, where the corps promises to give a more efficient service.

The municipality of Adeje extends from the coast up to a part of the Teide National Park. So it is not surprising that there is such a variety of pathways to enjoy the natural surroundings.

We also have the second most visited natural spot on the island, El Barranco del Infierno (Hell's Ravine), a place characteristic of southern geography, with a natural waterfall.

Festivals and traditions

The municipality of Adeje some interesting propositions for leisure pursuits, as much for the residents as for the visitors.

In a historically religious town, Easter plays an important role in the calendar of activities. It has now become a custom, and for several years now, more than two hundred actors meet in La Calle Grande (main street) to present The Death and Passion of Jesus Christ. Every year more people turn up to enjoy this interesting event.

Neither must we forget the carpets of the Corpus, created by organizations and local residents, which cover the Calle Grande in the city centre with colour.
And of course the fiestas in honour of the patrons, La Virgen de la Encarnación and Santa Ursula during the month of October, when you can enjoy the traditional Romeria (pilgrimage celebration).
