Sun bathe in the shadow of fearsome Mount Teide
On the southwest coast of Tenerife, Costa Adeje is a much newer and more upmarket counterpart to neighbouring Playa de las Americas, boasting an array of stylish hotels, a palm-fringed promenade, designer boutiques and volcanic black sand beaches.
It is not an accident that Tenerife is such a popular destination with visitors from many countries. The beautiful Costa Adeje with it magnificent 5* hotels has given this year round island a whole new dimension. High class shops have sprung up and the duty free shopping still provides incredible bargains. I have visited in November, December, March and in the summer and the evenings are always lovely and warm. With such a variety of attractions and a fabulous climate don’t hesitate to try it. Just 4 hours away it is fantastic for a long weekend or a fortnight’s holiday.

Lying on Tenerife’s west coast, Guia de Isora offers traditional Canarian restaurants and laid-back sand and shingle beaches. Enjoy windsurfing on Alcala beach and explore the walking trails of Mount Tiede National Park and the Los Gigantes Cliffs.
Alongside elegant plazas and a fishing harbour plus unusual black volcanic beaches, verdant Puerto de la Cruz also has a pretty Old Town. Unique La Gomera is a separate unspoilt island 40 minutes by ferry from Tenerife and a great place for swimming, rambling and hiking.
