Enjoy a luxurious Tenerife holiday in the exclusive area of Costa Adeje

Friday, 18 November 2011 12:06 PM

Beautiful beaches and glorious sunshine are just two reasons why people flock to Tenerife luxury hotels every year. If you're looking for somewhere a little more exclusive for your Canary Islands break, why not stay in the resort of Costa Adeje?

Tenerife is a hugely popular destination for both summer and winter holidays due to its year-round sunshine. Whenever you come here, you'll be greeted with black sandy shores - a reminder of the Spanish island's volcanic nature - and beautiful tropical forests.

Due to its 350-kilometre coastline, there are plenty of seaside resorts for you to choose from, but one that stands out if you're looking for a luxury holiday is Costa Adeje.

Situated on the south-western shore, this area of Tenerife offers pristine white sand beaches. Here, you'll find a number of resorts, making it popular among tourists.

These large hotels offer guests lots of amenities, including swimming pools and restaurants, which is why they are ideal if you're looking for a luxury honeymoon. With so much at your fingertips, you'll be able to completely relax on the Costa Adeje.

What's more, the location itself is a beautiful spot on the southern tip of Tenerife off the west coast of Morocco. While you're bound to see fellow tourists on some of the nearby shores, one beach that enables you to get a taste of authentic Tenerife is La Caleta.

This small stone cove is one of the area's lesser-visited spots, which means that you will be able to escape the crowds and enjoy some private time with your partner or your family.

Why not spend some time resting on the beach and jumping into the crystal-clear waters for a dip? After you have had a soak in the sea, you may have worked up an appetite, in which case you could visit some of the local restaurants in the area.

Here, you will be able to immerse yourself in the culture of the island, tasting traditional cuisines. Tuck into dishes of freshly-caught fish for a real treat and embrace the atmosphere of La Caleta.

While you're sure to love your stay in Costa Adeje, Tenerife is home to many other attractions, so make sure you leave time to take a look at some of these. For example, you might be interested in walking through its beautiful national parks or taking pictures of its volcano.
