We offer some activities which are based in Costa Adeje directly, but on the other hand Tenerife offers a huge diversity of natural and cultural places of interest and some of them are definitely worth visiting. The good thing is that it is easy to do from Costa Adeje, as all the bus excursions and day tours are providing pick up (and return too :D) from all the main resorts of Costa Adeje (Las Americas, San Eugenio, Fañabe, El Duque, Callao Salvaje, La Caleta and Playa Paraiso). So you don’t need to puzzle over how to get there.
One of the main must see places of Tenerife are, of course, the famous Vulcan Teide. The 3718 meters high Mountain is the highest, not only in Canaries, but in whole Spain. Mount Teide is surrounded by the Teide National Park, the UNESCO world heritage site. It comprises a big variety of landscapes, including famous Lunar Landscape. One more reason to visit the Teide National park is that some movies were filmed there, for example, One Millions Years B.C. and Clash of the Titans.
You could visit Teide with the half day tour to Teide. With this tour you will also have time to get the cable car to the top of the mountain (the cable car should be payed apart from the excursion). With a bit of luck and a cloud clear skyline, from the summit you will be able to see all seven Canary Islands.
If you want to change a bit the environment, go for a day guided tour to LA GOMERA with pick up from Costa Adeje, the island which you can see during the clear days on the other side of the sea of Costa Adeje. This island had been visited even by Christopher Columbus. Its national park Garajonay is another example of Laurisilva tropical forest.
Teide-Masca excursion is very popular and recommended, as it brings you to the most worthy places of Tenerife. Among them, besides Teide and Masca, are Icod de los Vinos with its famous 1000 old Dragon Tree and Garachico, the prosperous trading port in the past, destroyed by volcanic eruption.
Masca is a small authentic village which should not be missed. It will make you feel in the other reality, observing typical Canary atmosphere, conserved in the centuries.
The curious thing about the Masca Village is that it legendary used to be a refuge for pirates due to its isolated location.
Prepare your camera. These spectacular views deserve to be posted in your Instagram!
A great romantic activity is Teide by night tour. Due to low light pollution, Tenerife is one of the best places for stargazing. We will tell you even more – Teide National park was recognized as a “Starlight Destination.”Good enough reason to make this fantastic activity with your beloved one.

Boat Trips in Costa Adeje
You may be asking, why to do a boat trip in Tenerife? Well, here are some reasons, apart from relaxation and enjoying the ocean, of course.
Whale or Dolphin Watching
Costa Adeje is an ideal place to do activities like Whale Watching. Whales and dolphins are living permanently between the waters of Tenerife and La Gomera. Although more than 28 species of whales and dolphins have been spotted in the Canary waters, the most common species here are the Bottlenose dolphins and the Pilot whales.
Visit them with one of our boat trips departing from Puerto Colon – the harbor, located directly in Costa Adeje. You can make 2 hours, 3 hours or 4,5 hours boat trips. You also have different boat options, depending on your budget and preferences. On Tenerife we can offer you Luxury Yachts Charters , Sailing Boats, Catamarans, Motor Yachts and RIB boats and they will all depart from Costa Adeje.
Los Gigantes Cliffs
Apart from whale watching, a boat trip could be a great option to visit the spectacular Los Gigantes cliffs. These phenomenal volcanic stone formations constitute a huge vertical wall which reaches heights of 800 meters at some points. Quite impressing, we have to admit! So be prepared to feel goosebumps on your skin when you see this monumental miracle of nature.
And some more marvellous activities, included to the boat trips are swimming and snorkelling in one of the most sheltered little bays of Tenerife, like Masca Bay or El Puertito. Snorkeling material is normally already on board (check the description of the boat to know if its included).
If you are an outdoor enthusiastic, don’t hesitate to explore some trekking routes of Tenerife. The best are trekking the Masca Canyon or the ascend to Teide. Some trekking routes are really challenging, some require just some comfortable shoes and love for the nature.
For those who want to get acquainted with Tenerife in an unusual way, we recommend making Quad Biking from Costa Adeje with one of our Quad Safari activities. You can explore some really spectacular areas of Tenerife, such as Los Gigantes and Teide National Park. You will be driving mainly off-road, so you will have the opportunity to take a look to the nature of Tenerife from a different angle.
Jeep safari will be another option to discover Tenerife off-road.
If you want more privacy and customisation
You like the idea of a boat trip, but would like to do it totally private?The solution is to hire a yacht with captain and make a private boat charter in Costa Adeje. You can make a private whale watching tour and other activities included to the standard boat excursion or design your own trip.
Embark on one of the offered boats or yachts and sail away from crowds and fuss to enjoy peace and serenity in the intimate atmosphere.
If you are going to celebrate any special event
By the way, the private yacht charter is a great way to celebrate any kind of special event, like birthday, wedding proposal, hen party or bachelor party. However, the special reason is not necessary – just doing it with your friends or family and this fantastic day will be one of the warmest memories about your holidays in Tenerife.
Sunset Boat Charter for Proposal
The first thing which comes to the mind is to do a Sunset Boat Charter in Costa Adeje. What could be more romantic than watching the colourful sunset with your loved one while having a glass of sparkling wine? That could be a perfect moment to propose a marriage or to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
If you like fishing or just would like to try it during your vacations in Costa Adeje, we recommend you Happy Hooker shared fishing tours or private fishing tours. The captain is experienced and knows all the best places for fishing, so the chances to get a fish are pretty high.
In Costa Adeje you can also do diving or snorkeling.
If you never did diving before, we recommend you our Try Dive. That is a perfect possibility to discover the underwater world of Tenerife in a safe way, guided by the qualified instructor. Our Try Dive is designed especially for unexperienced divers. Or make a Scuba Diving course in Costa Adeje and discover the incredible underwater world. Get your Official PADI DIVING CERTIFICATE during your holiday with one of our PADI courses. Don’t worry if you don’t have any diving experience.
A very easy way to do snorkeling is to go with one of our tours which do include it in the itinerary. A good choice would be the Abrazo Catamaran or the private boat charter. The boat normally already include the masks and tubes and are available free for usage.
And of course don’t forget for what you manly came to Costa Adeje – its beautiful beaches. Stretch out on the warm sand and get a perfect sun-kissed look at Playa Fañabe, Playa Troya, Playa del Bobo or Playa del Duque. To make snorkeling, consider visiting the lovely sheltered bay – El Puertito de Adeje (the Turtle bay).
