The area known as Costa Adeje (Las Américas - Los Cristianos) has many world-class facilities and leisure opportunities besides sea and sand, such as quality shopping centres, golf courses, restaurants, waterparks, animal parks, and a theatre suitable for musicals or a Congress Hall.

Costa Adeje

Playa de las Américas was built in the 1960s beside the town of Los Cristianos and stretching northward to the Costa Adeje. The resort area features numerous bars and nightclubs, as well as a number of beaches, most of which are man-made from imported sand from Africa due to the darkness of the native volcanic sand.

Los Cristianos is a popular tourist resort and an important ferry port. It is located in the municipality of Arona between the cone of Montaña Chayofita and the imposing Montaña Guaza, the town centre is around the bay of Los Cristianos, but is rapidly expanding inland with modern development.

More recently coastal development has spread northwards from Playa de las Americas and now encompasses the former small enclave of La Caleta. After the Moratoria act passed by the Canarian Parliament in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, no more hotels should be built on the island unless they are classified as 5 star-quality and comprise different services such as Golf Courses or Congress facilities. This act was passed with the goal of improving the standard of tourism service and promoting environmentally conscious development.
