Top attractions in Adeje
With luxury hotels, gorgeous beaches, and some of Tenerife's best restaurants and entertainment, Adeje has established itself as one of the Canary Islands' most attractive holiday destinations. Here's what else to do when you're not soaking up the sunshine!
"Parrot Park" boasts the world's largest collection of the birds, but also the longest shark tunnel on Earth, and Europe's largest dolphin show pool and indoor penguin exhibition!
Europe's most spectacular waterpark offers more than just thrilling rides and slides. Its restaurants, floating market, and sea lion exhibit complete a great family day out!
Tenerife's volcanic landscape is just a short journey from its best beaches! Follow the scenic hiking trails to Mount Teide – the world's third-largest volcano!
At 3,718 meters, the island's highest point is quite a sight. But Volcan El Teide's real highlight is the cable car that takes visitors up to the best vantage points.
Visit the hidden village of Masca then tour its dramatic scenery. The surrounding gorge stretches right down to its beautiful beach – the perfect place to rest your feet!
Sightseeing in Tenerife isn't complete without spying pilot whales and dolphins off its sunny coastline! Don't miss out – sail with an expert guide or even see them by submarine!
The crystal clear waters of Costa Adeje make it a haven for all types of water activities, from scuba diving and snorkelling to surfing and fishing.
Adeje (or Costa Adeje) is a coastal town in southwestern Tenerife – the largest of the Canary Islands.
Though small, Tenerife has two airports to handle its turnover of tourists. Adeje is just 17 km from Tenerife South Airport (formerly known as Sur Reina Sofia Airport). Don't worry if you're flying to Tenerife North Airport instead – the drive south only takes an hour!

What people are saying about Adeje
From the minute I booked until the minute I landed, I was looked after very well. Everything was explained in detail of the paragliding trip. As I had never paraglider before, I was really nervous but I was put at ease. Was most nervous about take off but shouldn't have been. It was very quick and easy. Felix, my pilot was great. He was explaining things throughout the flight and kept asking if I was ok. It was so peaceful and felt like I was floating above the island. The views were amazing. The landing was so easy too. Just a few steps and we were on the ground. The photos and videos of my flight are crystal clear and a cherished memory of my time flying!! I can't wait to book again with Overfly Tenerife next time I come to Tenerife and I enjoyed it so and felt so safe that I will will book the acrobatic flight! Thank you so much for making me feel at ease and very safe. I recommend this experience to anyone. Young or old! I can't wait to book again next time I come to Tenerife.
100% recomendable!!!!!!! Pasamos un día estupendo. Nuestro skipper, Félix nos atendió super bien, un hombre increíble y muy entendido sobre el tema. Vimos como veinte ballenas y algún Delfín. Ademas, el barco es super silencioso y los animales no se asustan cuando pasamos por su lado. De verdad que lo recomendamos 100% a todo aquel que quiera estar en pleno contacto con la naturaleza marina y sus alrededores, por no mencionar el increíble baño que nos dimos al finalizar la excursión, el agua estaba genial, super limpia y muy agradable. Por otro lado es altamente recomendable alquilar excursiones en barcos con aforo limitado dadas las circunstancias en las que nos encontramos ahora. Un 10! Gracias White Tenerife, y gracias Félix, un placer encantador haber pasado un rato entre cetáceos.
We went first to see the dolphins and later the pilot whales and we managed to see quite a few. They offered us one drink per person at the beginning. I liked that the ship was not overcrowded. The only negative point is that the explanations were on the way back but with we couldn´t hear them well because of the wind. Overall the activity is worth it. It takes about one hour 45 min.
It was amazing. Full day relaxing on the boat (we reserved for extra 20 euros on bed deluxe on the front of the boat, we comment to pay it, worth it) We relaxed, saw whales and dolphines we got a swim in a beautiful a Los gigantes clifs. Totally recommended.
It is touristy thing, but still worse it. We have not seen whales, but we saw a lot of dolphins. The pinnacle of the 3 hour ride was swimming in the ocean. We also booked the front row for 10 eur, enjoyed the sun
