Do you want to escape the cold climate of home? Can you picture yourself sitting on a scenic beach enjoying the sunshine? This could be a reality sooner than you think…

Nestled on the southern coast of Tenerife, in the upmarket region of Costa Adeje, is the beautiful Playa Fañabé. Take a swim in the pristine warm waters, relax with a refreshing drink and absorb the serenity of this popular yet tranquil stretch of golden sand. This seaside resort is an ideal location for anyone and everyone. The emphasis here is on serenity rather than hustle and bustle, although there is much to do if you are feeling active.

Distinguished by its Blue Flag status, Playa Fañabé stands out as one of the best beaches on Tenerife’s coastline. This impressive award is only given to beaches of distinction. It acknowledges the cleanliness of the water and sand as well as the excellent facilities, which includes several access points for people with disabilities.

The limpid ocean attracts lovers of water sports. Ride a jet-ski through the open water across the length of Playa Fañabé or have a good laugh on a banana boat. If you are feeling extra adventurous, strap on a water parachute which is taken high above the resort; a great way to take in the views of the Atlantic and mountains, not to mention being a very exhilarating experience!

Seconds away from the beach are an abundance of gourmet restaurants, cafés and bars serving cool drinks and great food. In addition, boutiques line the lovely promenade and luxurious hotels overlook the ocean. Hotel Jardines de Nivaria is an excellent establishment that comes with a Spain-Tenerife recommendation. It offers 5-star quality, fantastic hospitality and is ideally positioned directly opposite Playa Fañabé. In fact, guests can take a private lift straight down to the beach. Another upmarket hotel is the 4-star Hotel Colón Guanahaní, which is a short stroll from the shore.

Local buses run to and from Playa Fañabé, there is a taxi rank and lots of parking.
