Bahia Principe Costa Adeje - Beaches nearby

Hi,

Looking to go here in August, before we book i need to know how far the beaches are? How much would a taxi cost or are they walking distance. Is there regular buses? Ideally want to travel to a man made golden one as imagine all the others are dark shingle beaches.

Any advice greatly appreciated. thank you

There is a small quiet beach close by in El Puertito which as you say is black sand, there is this one …tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/01/04/36/9c/t… what look like coloured houses on the ridge is the hotel complex and there is a new beach at Callao Salvaje janetanscombe.com/wp-content/uploads/Callao-…

if you really want golden sands they your closest is Las Vistas, it will cost approx €12-15 each way in a taxi.

thank you very much. The black sand link doesnt work however?

The new beach at Callao Salvaje, how far are we talking walking or taxi?

Ideally looking for one with nice sand, sun loungers and possibly pedalos. Only going to travel to the beach 2 or 3 times so 15euro would be ok

thank you

Unless you're particularly fit I would not contemplate a walk to Callao. Unfortunately, unless you bring your own, there are no loungers or pedalos for hire. The sand was "manufactured" by continual grinding of the rocks which were on the site and, as a consequence, there are areas of rather sharp sand particles so flip flops/ sandles are recommended.

Hi Stu

We venture off the compound once in the week. A cab to Playa Fanabe will cost around 15 each way, and there the beach is golden with all the usual water sports.

Yes - the usual souvenir shops, fake handbag shops etc. For serious, credit card hitting shopping you'd be better going to Playa de las Americas, but Fanabe offers more than enough browsing!

Thank you for your advises Nildesperanda.

So 15euro to Fanabe, how much to head to Playa de las Americas if you know?

Looking forward to going :)

Ummm... I think about 20-25 euros? Tho there is a bus from the hotel every hour which costs 5 euro per person. There is a free bus every day at 12 I think.
