What to do and see in Adeje, Spain: The Best Places and Tips

January 11, 2018 Christa Meece

With the dramatic backdrop of 12,200-foot Mount Teide towering behind the resort, Adeje makes an unforgettable vacation destination. Adeje is less than two miles from the boisterous nightlife of Playa de las Americas, allowing visitors to choose whether to take it easy or to party. Bake in the sun on black volcanic sands before cooling down at a water park, such as popular Siam Park, or out windsurfing. Barranco del Infierno, Hell's Gorge, is a lush oasis, perfect for hiking.

This Park is awesome and caters for all ages, the rides are anything between gentle meanders and hair raising high speed slides in the dark or under sharks. Food is a little over priced but the park is fantastic

Nice little bay with a fabulous beach, shops, cafes, restaurants etc and easy to walk to along the seafront Promenade. Great atmosphere both day and night and a little quieter and more upmarket than the centre of Costa Adjere.

Barranco del Infierno

The Special Nature Reserve Barranco del Infierno is a place where only 300 people are allowed to enter a day in order to preserve the environment and not alter the development of the species, the flora and fauna. Thus, to visit the place a previous reservation is essential. Book now checking the calendar and availability and make sure you get your entrance ticket. We'll be waiting for you!

This was an excellent walk with breathtaking views although there was not much water in the ravine when we were there. A few pointers for people thinking about going there. This place can get fully booked even at off peak times so I would recommend making a reservation. You must have sturdy shoes as you are walking on paths which are either fine gravel, stone steps or rocks, some of which can be a little slippery. You must take water with you, even in February it can get hot and there are some parts where you quickly climb a significant ascent which makes you even hotter. On the other hand you do not want to drink too much water as apart from at the start there are no toilets and the walk can take up to three hours. The walk is classed as of low-medium difficulty but there is a lot of ascent which if you are not fit, you may have to stop for breath, my fitness monitor estimated I had climbed the equivalent of over 150 flights of stairs that day. The walk took us around 2½ hours with a 10 minute stop at the waterfall. On the decent we made that more interesting by stopping for a beer in the town then following the ravine on an unofficial rocky path from the motorway roundabout all the way down to the sea near La Caleta.

Visited here as it's one of our favourite places on the island. Lovely walk along the front and you can spend a couple of hours watching the world go by. Highly recommended.

Playa del Bobo

Reviewed By dtlibra - Ennis, Ireland

This is the nearest beach to our hotel : Iberostar Bouganville playa. The black sand gets hot, so bring towels. Swimming is safe in little bay protected by rock groynes. Very central i to all of Costa Adeje, with restaurants and shops.
