Development of Costa Adeje began in the late 1960s on the southwest coast of Tenerife. The city borders on the tourist stronghold of Playa de las Américas to the south. In Costa Adeje there are predominantly 4 and 5 star hotels that have a well-groomed appearance and can satisfy more demanding tourists. These come from all over Europe: menus in restaurants are often printed in 10 different languages.
It had a permanent population of about 20,000 people in 2018.
The closest airport, Tenerife South, is just under 30 km away and easily accessible via the TF-1.
Costa Adeje is accessible by bus from Tenerife South Airport using the bus routes 343, 450, 111 and 40.
From the island's capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the North Airport, take line 110.
The island motorway TF-1 comes from Santa Cruz, about 70 km away. It ends (for the time being) immediately north of Costa Adeje, and continues to Guía de Isora on its continuation, the TF-82.
