Tenerife: An Island of Volcanic Wonder
As one of the most convenient and accessible destinations on Tenerife, beach hotels in Costa Adeje provide the ideal base from which to explore the rest of this extraordinary island. The whole island only takes between three and four hours to explore by car, so daytrips from Costa Adeje are not just simple, but encouraged! Start your tour of the island at its rocky heartland with a hike around Mount Teide. It only takes eight minutes to reach the summit by Cable Car and offers 360 degree views of the Teide National Park and surrounding island. For a truly breathtaking experience, book a sunrise hike to the summit through your beach hotel in Costa Adeje. The active volcano also features an observatory where little ones can gaze at the heavens. Further exploration of Tenerife’s natural wonders can be found at the Anaga Rural Park; home to a dramatic mountain range and tranquil hidden beaches that feel a million miles from civilization. To discover some of Tenerife’s history take a trip from your 5 star hotel in Costa Adeje to the colorful colonial town of La Orotava. Here you can spend the afternoon strolling the sun-kissed cobbled streets and immaculate gardens that make the town one of the most attractive in the whole archipelago.
Further Destinations in the Canary Islands
The Canary Islands offer a huge array of destinations, activities and sites that are only unique to this Spanish archipelago, so why not extend your vacation beyond your Costa Adeje beach hotel? Much like French explorer Jean de Béthencourt in 1402, why not begin your exploration of the Canaries with Lanzarote. With its year-round exceptional weather and blissful beaches, Lanzarote is a destination not to be missed. From the barren rock forms of the Timanfaya National Park to the sand dunes to the gently lapping waves of Playa de Las Conchas, Lanzarote’s status as a UNESCO biosphere reserve guarantees nothing less than beach hotels in paradise. Before settling into your beach hotel in Costa Adeje, take a few days to explore Fuerteventura. Windsurfers will find plenty to love about this windy isle, and families with little ones can spend hours spotting the rare birdlife of Lobos Island while sunning on the beach. If you have time on your Costa Adeje beach vacation, then Gran Canaria is also worth a visit – if simply to explore the melting pot of cultures and Mediterranean atmosphere of one of the Canary Islands’ most vibrant cities; Las Palmas.
