Visit Adeje

Adeje is a fantastic destination that combines the rural charm of an ancient mountain village, dreamy beaches and leisure options to suit all tastes.

If you choose to spend a few days’ holiday in Adeje, we recommend you explore this mountain village before heading off to its beaches. Take a stroll to Plaza de España square, a busy meeting place during the town’s traditional festivities. At its centre stands the tower of the Museum of Sacred Art, a space dedicated to an exhibition of Gobelin tapestries and other unique religious pieces.

In the square you’ll also find the church of Santa Úrsula, dating from the 17th century. Admire the Mudéjar-style ceiling and the idol that crowns the belfry, two elements of great tourist interest. Opposite is the Convento de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y San Pablo, a convent that’s accessed through a victory arch of stonework columns with Corinthian capitals.

Check out the imposing exterior of the Casa Fuerte, a building that dates back to the 16th century. Originally, this residence of the Ponte family was part of the defensive structure of the town against attacks from pirates, but was later used to store sugar cane.

Book one of our cheap trips to Adeje and visit the spectacular Duque beach, the most popular in the area. Its golden sands dotted with palm trees give it an idyllic atmosphere that invites visitors to soak up the sun or go for a dip. You can also go shopping in the many shops along the promenade or practise your favourite water sports.

Get away from the crowds in the picturesque fishing village of La Caleta with our package deals to Adeje. Take a stroll along the beautiful coast or dive in the crystal waters of this protected environment. Take advantage of the opportunity to taste the fresh local fish in one of the restaurants that overlook the sea.

And you certainly can’t leave without visiting Siam Park, a large aquatic theme park inspired by the Thai kingdom of Siam. Float down the river, relax on the beautiful artificial beach or glide full speed down water slides.
