Best things to do 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!
1. Loro Parque
"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!
2. Siam Park
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!
3. Teide National Park
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!
4. Mount Teide Teleférico
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.
5. Masca Walk
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!
6. Dolphin and whale watching
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.

Where is it?
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!

Very well organised experience. Steffi is very friendly and with high knowledge about Teide and the island. We definitely are very happy that we did this tour and we highly recommend it!
Nice crew, big and spacy ship. Strongly recommending take sunbed in front of ship (for additional cost). Lot of dolphins in our way. Los Gigantes and Masca -
very nice tour, to have a different view of this part of the island. Hugo, the guide, was very friendly and full of little anecdotes. I recommend it
Vert well organized and fun. Don’t expect moby dick but you’ll see small whales and dolphins quite close!
