Best beaches in South Tenerife
Near Costa Adeje, there are approximately 10 beaches (this is because you can differ about the exact location of each one of them). Here we’ll explain 6 of them. Let’s say they are the most popular.
Puerto Colon Beach
Located at Costa Adeje’s centre, Puerto Colon Beach is an amazing place to go with family due to its calmed tides and variate activities to be done around it. From water sports for the oldest and children’s park for the youngest.
We have written a post about Puerto Colon Harbour explaining a lot about it and also giving a detailed description of its Nautical Club, which is one of the most exclusive on the whole island but with facilities that are not accessible to the public.
If you decide to simply go for a swim in its calm waters that are perfect for a relaxing day, it’s important to remark that you’ll have an approach to a fine and soft white sand with a clean aspect.
Also, there are a lot of excursions that can be done. For example, we give tours around the whole island (sailing from Puerto Colon) to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat with snacks, beverages, qualified crew and much more! It is an amazing experience and lets you meet Tenerife from another point of view.
Del Duque Beach (Playa del Duque)
Great beach if you’re a sun and relax lover with all the facilities include in a very well cared beach by authorities. It’s important to mention that it counts with the blue flag distinction, ¿What’s that? An accreditation that guarantees high quality and clean water and also on its services.
It is located in a very touristic zone in front of some of the most exclusive hotels in the area, with greyish sand that borders a coastal walk that connects with eight more beaches (as told above).
It has an approximate length of 390 meters, more than 100 parking places and some services such as:
- Changing rooms

- Much more!
Beach that counts with a volcanic origin is also located in the centre of Costa Adeje which offers a variate amount of services such as “El Duque Beach”. On the other hand, it adjoins a maritime avenue where you can find different restaurants, bars and recognized stores.
In fact, this is – along with “Troya” beaches – one of the beaches on the island with more touristic history, where you can just take a break from stress or have some adrenaline experiencing some aquatic activities.
In “Playa del Bobo” you have the opportunity to experience a walk through its maritime avenue where you’ll find restaurants, bars, stores and other facilities on this urban beach with big infrastructure near.
Pinta Beach (Playa de la Pinta)
Beach that counts with a beautiful promenade that surrounds it that contrary to other beaches in Tenerife, has a great environment during the day and also night.
Pinta Beach has cosy golden sand and quiet tides thanks to its dykes installation that makes it amazing to go to a relaxing day with family and friends, as well as its strategic location, which is next to Puerto Colon. As explained above, one of the main ports on the island.
Pinta has the most exclusive hotels in the area and activities to be done that make it very attractive when it comes down to them. Some can be:
- Scuba diving
- Inflatable castles in the water
When we talk about Troya Beach, there are two with the same name (I and II), and they are the most traditional beaches in Tenerife. Amazing for you if you’re a waves, fun and tranquillity fan.
These beaches also count with the blue distinction flag that accredits them to have an optimum water quality, as well as its services. They have volcanic sand (it isn’t hot, don’t worry) and calm tides which is a great place to go with family.
It has an approximate length of 650 meters which makes the beach relatively long. If you want you can complete your visit with a walk through its promenade where you’ll find malls, apartments, ATMs and more!
Enramada Beach (Playa de la Enramada)
Small beach made of volcanic stones on the island’s south coast especially quiet where you can be in full contact with nature. Its sand is made of its own crushed “callaos”, which gives the beach a peculiar aspect with its black sand.
Year-round it counts with calm waves, although in some seasons surfers get there because of its high-quality waves due to the volcanic rock background.
Something unforgettable about this beach is the stone mounds formed by small towers that are in the callaos zone. Visitors have placed them at different heights and created a colourful spectacle that gets better at sunset.
These are some of the best beaches in Costa Adeje, which are very popular and recognized by visitors, as well as well cared for by authorities.
We encourage you to to to… ALL OF THEM! They are the most in the same coastal line and if you’re in the zone is not hard to reach them.
