Things To Do
Away from the beach, golf is one of the top activities. Golf Costa Adeje is a superb championship 27-hole course close to the fishing village of La Caleta. If you haven't the time to play a full 18, they also have a challenging 9-hole course. And while one partner tramps the fairway, the other can book themselves in for some serious pampering. Spas are big business in the land of eternal sun. Look for signature treatments using local products such as volcanic mud or banana leaves.
For families and children the options in Costa Adeje include the Aqualand, Siam Park, Go Karting, Ten-pin bowling and for younger kids the excellent indoor Miki Park in the Centro Comercial El Duque shopping centre. There's also a 7-screen cinema inside the Gran Sur shopping centre which periodically shows English-language films.
