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
Jose was such a great captain! We were greeted with champagne flutes and they will take a picture of you and have it ready for when you get off the boat very good quality picture! He explained the trip and the layout under the boat. The trip offered much more than I thought it would! We were able to sit on the front of the boat and get sun. And be the first to see anything come up. I thought there would be like maybe one possibly two drinks per person and he had a whole big cooler full of beer or wine and soda and water. Delicious baguettes for lunch and he was just such a great host at lunch he made sure everyone had their sandwich and drink! The area we went to snorkel was great too and he threw crackers in so they would come right up to us it was awesome! This is the best money we spent on our week long trip for sure I 100% recommend it! If we ever get the chance to come back to Tenerife we will be doing this with him again! Thank you so much for the great memories!
Fantastic boating experience, got the chance to see Whales and Dolphins and the 3 hour trip was he right length on board. Enough time to see the above and also swim in a quiet bay before heading back to the port via the coast. 10 people on board which was a nice number. The captain did a good job in giving us an experience with the dolphins swimming in the waves created by the boat. He was clearly very knowledgeable and experienced but with this in mine, he could have been more informative. He spent the majority of the time on his phone and could have also been more forthcoming with the free drinks that were part of the package.
It was great, we got to see dolphins and small whales, however it says it is with pick up, when emailed where we stayed was told that there was actually no pick up there (15 minutes away). It mentions underwater views... must have missed that but there was no underwater views. I did enjoy the trip as much as could. There was a cafe with drinks and food however we didn't have anything. Would recommend.
We did really enjoy the views and paths on Teide! Alfonso and Steffi were very cozy and friendly with all the group! We were few in the group but very organised and all in good mood ^_^ We feel sorry that we couldn't get up to the top cause of the cabs were not operating because of strong winds. But in the end we did really appreciate for the day that we had together!
We had a lovely day, Julio the Captain was charming, looked after everyone! We were lucky to see whales and dolphins, then spend time in a cove in el Peurto Tito, to snorkel and swim! Pleasant lunch and drinks. Photos taken as we got on board which was a lovely idea. Paul and Natalia lovely people, so helpful, highly recommend The Blue Boy for a memorable trip!
