Tenerife is the largest and most populated island there is in all Spain, so it is only logical to assume that it is also one of the main touristic destinations you could find in the whole Macanoresia region.
Right there in Tenerife there is an area called Costa Adeje, which is a singular population entity from the Adeje municipality that is perfect for escaping from stress and having some incredible relaxing time.
Costa Adeje is a very privileged area, and in it, there is “El Duque beach”, which is a beach that has a greyish sand, blue fresh waters and a very short distance to the most luxurious hotels, so there is always something good to do and something beautiful to see, whatever you prefer, but having a nice quality time its included in every single faucet of the experience.
You may be asking to yourself: Great, but how many things can you truly do in a beach?
