5 Best things to do in Costa Adeje in 2022
Located in the beautiful south of the island of Tenerife, Costa Adeje has plenty of fantastic bars, restaurants, shops and attractions.
If you’re staying in Costa Adeje or are visiting for the day and are looking for things to do, here are some of the best things to do compiled by Sunphoria!
If you need any further information about things to do in Costa Adeje or Tenerife in general then give us a call or an e-mail, we’re always happy to offer advice and information.
Siam Park (Water Park)
Of course, Siam Park is no secret but this wouldn’t be an article about Costa Adeje (or even Tenerife for that matter) if we didn’t include it!
Chosen as the world’s best waterpark by Trip Advisor in 2015 and 2017 and given a Travellers Choice Award by Trip Advisor in 2021, this water park really is incredible fun for all the family.
With the 1km long ‘Mai Thai’ lazy river including an extra route taking you down slides and through a glass aquarium-style tunnel, ‘The Wave Palace’, which is a wave pool that features the largest man-made wave in the world and 11 adrenaline pumping slides and rides!
Although, in our opinion, Siam Park is geared slightly more towards older children and adults, there is still plenty for younger children. The Lost City is an amazing children’s area in the park featuring bridges, towers, cascades and 15 waterslides!
When you start to feel peckish there are plenty of food and drink options such as the Beach Club and Beach Bar located by The Wave Palace offering fast food and drinks. Located a little further into the park you can find the Thai Bar where you can enjoy a cocktail or sangria with a view of the Mai Thai River. Of course, you can bring your own lunch and the park charge €3 to look after food and drink for you.

One of the most popular beaches for tourists in Tenerife, Fañabé Beach is around a 10 minute walk from the centre of Costa Adeje.
This beautiful beach is very safe with calm waters and lifeguards throughout the day. In the area are plenty of bars and restaurants offering local and international cuisine.

Also known as Costa Adeje Market, Fañabé Market is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a bargain whilst on holiday in Tenerife. Located on Av de Bruselas, Costa Adeje, the market has many stalls offering clothing, jewellery and souvenirs plus much more.
The market opens on Thursday and Saturday every week from 9am until 2pm.
Many of the clothing items on sale are replicas of high-end brands’ products so always check the quality of items before purchasing. Most, if not all, of the items on offer will be offered at a greatly inflated price for tourists as sellers will expect you to bargain. You should always haggle to get the best price possible and never accept the first price offered.
A word of warning: Despite the Costa Adeje area being relatively safe, the market can get very crowded at peak times therefore pickpockets operate in the area and target tourists. Always keep valuables in a safe place, preferably in a bag kept on your front such as a bum bag.
Visit Puerto Colon
A short walk south along the coast takes you to Puerto Colon where you will find the beautiful beach of Playa de la Pinta, plenty of bars and restaurants and a large harbour.
Boat Trips & Excursions from Puerto Colon
From whale watching boat trips to snorkelling lessons and even speedboat hire are all available from Puerto Colon, all of which can be booked through Sunphoria Excursions.

Walk from Costa Adeje to Los Cristianos
We would highly recommend walking south along the coastal path from Costa Adeje to Los Cristianos via Puerto Colon and Playa de las Américas.
The 1 hour 30 minutes walk along Tenerife’s coast takes you past some of the beautiful natural black sand beaches on the island such as Playa de Troya or the aforementioned Playa de Fañabé. From start to finish, the entire coastal path is lined with bars and restaurants giving you plenty of opportunity to sample some of the local beers, wines and cuisine.
