Costa Adeje is one of the main destinations in Tenerife in terms of beaches. Thousands of feet of soft sand are ready to welcome your feet on vacation. The beaches on this coast are carefully protected to keep them in optimal condition.
Hammocks, massages, water sports, beach bars and much more are some of the things you can enjoy. But beyond the extensive list of attractions, there is something about the beaches of Costa Adeje that makes them better than any other in the Canary Islands. Its beauty, tranquility and accessibility is incomparable.
The main beaches of Costa Adeje are perfectly safe for sunbathing and paddling on the shore. They are kept clean thanks to the screening services that take place almost every morning; there are no broken glass or pieces of sand that can hurt you. Lifeguards patrol most of the recommended beaches and are usually dressed in red or yellow.
The best bathroom areas
When it comes to swimming, you are completely safe on the main beaches of Costa Adeje. The bathing areas are fenced off from boats and other water activities that take place. Swimming off rocky and unsupervised beaches is not recommended. There is a reason why Costa Adeje is popular with bodyboarders and sometimes surfers.
The waves can be deceptively strong and the rocky edge of the shoreline is not something you want to experience up close. Not to mention, there is no protection against boat propellers, fishing nets, and other dangers floating around.
The best way to enjoy swimming in Costa Adeje is to make use of the hotel pool early in the morning or to book a boat trip. You can take a boat to one of the coves or secluded corners of the Adeje coast where you can swim, fish and dive without worries.
What can you take to the beach?
First of all, make sure you are wearing a good pair of shoes along with your flip flops. You will definitely need them to get into some of the best restaurants in Costa Adeje, and also to protect your feet from the volcanic sand on the beaches. Many of the beaches in Costa Adeje tend to be quite crowded.
You will also need a towel, even if you don’t plan on going into the water, as loungers buckle up quickly and in most cases you will have to grab a spot directly in the sand.
Finally, you will need cash. Most shops and restaurants accept cards, but cash is useful for beach bars, stand-alone stalls, and sun loungers. Reserve some coins for showers and other services.
