Puerto Colon Marina, Costa Adeje

Costa Adeje, is is the coastal area on the South West coast of Tenerife that stretches to the north from the bridge on the Sea Front next to Veronicas Commercial Centre in Playa de las Americas through Puerto Colon, Torviscas, Fanabe, Playa del Duque, La CaletaPlaya ParaisoCallao Salvaje to Marazul on it's northern border.  

More information on the Costa Adeje resort areas can be found by clicking on the above links.

It has easy access to all surrounding areas. Costa Adeje has a quieter and more reserved atmosphere than Playa de las Americas, it's southern neighbour in Tenerife and is also very good for water sports. You can easily get into Playa de las Americas by bus when you want to sample the action.  Many would argue that much of Costa Adeje is part of Playa de las Americas there is virtually a continuous stretch of buildings, hotels, apartments, shops, restaurants and bars all along the stretch from Playa de las Americas to Playa del Duque then only a 100 metre gap which appears to have signs of becoming a building site (2008) before La Caleta starts.

The wonderful coastline consists of fabulous beaches of fanabe, torviscas, Playa del Duque, in the bays and also rocky headlands and coves. Enjoy a stroll along the front on a paved promenade or path for almost the entire length from La Caleta to Los Cristianos. From Los Cristianos to Playa de Troya the walk is flat, then there is a hill with a series of steps on the promenade at Playa del Bobo. The steps can be avoided by a slightly longer journey via the main road.

The main natural attraction of Adeje is the nearby Barranco del Infierno, the deepest gorge in not only in Tenerife but the Canary Islands.  The very impressive steep sides of the deep Hell's gorge Barranco del Infierno can be reached by a trail from Adeje. Allow around 4 hours for a return hike. Strong footwear and additional clothing advised. There is a small 80 metre high waterfall in the upper reaches of the ravine, with amazing views to be seen. Note how the vegetation changes as you ascend up the Barranco del Infierno.

A charge is made and only limited numbers are allowed into the gorge so it is advisable to book in advance.

At least a litre of water is required because the ravine is a sun trap. Hard hats, provided, have to be worn in the higher reaches. The ravine may be closed during and after rainfalls because of the danger of rock falls.
