Duque beach

Just a few decades ago, there was a barren desert in these places, now Duke's Beach is one of the visiting cards of the city of Costa Adeje.

Beach description

Not very large, half a kilometer long, Duke's beach is covered with light gray sand. The width of the beach strip is 40 meters, but the tidal wave goes deep. Once the beach was natural, but the rapid resort construction forced to artificially expand this beach, bringing here sand from the desert. And today the arrangement of the beach area continues: its neighboring sections are expanding, tons of sand are being imported.

Thanks to the stone moles, the waves are relatively calm here. Sunset in the sea is flat, the bottom is flat and smooth without stones. The sand here does not heat up like on the “black beaches”, walking is pleasant and easy. The beach is very clean, it is not for nothing that he became the owner of the Blue Flag. Duke's Beach is great for families. Truly, parking by the beach is small. Here guests of local hotels leave their rented cars, as well as employees. There is a spacious promenade along the beach. If you go right to the natural beaches with black and gray sand, you can stumble upon an improvised rock garden.

When is it better to go

In Tenerife, you can relax all year round, but the most comfortable months for a beach holiday are July, August and September. In winter, the island is prone to precipitation and strong winds. The temperature of the ocean all year round is around +21 °C.

What to see

  • Garachico
  • Santa-Cruz-de-Tenerife

The Costa Adeje area is conveniently located. From here you can reach anywhere in the island.

In the town of Garachico, the TF-1 then TF-82 highway leads. You need to spend the whole day to see the sights of this cozy town. There is something to see here. Monasteries and churches, natural and man-made monuments. The remains of a medieval fort, which guarded the city from pirates, now there is a museum. And also the natural lava pools of El Caleton. Once the town suffered from the eruption of the Teide volcano. And where the hot lava met the ocean, natural alcoves formed. You can swim in them at high tide, when they are filled with water. The pools are equipped with stairs for descent, but many daredevils dive right there from above. This is dangerous because the depth of the pool can be deceiving. Please note that the city of Garachico is located in the north of the island, even in summer it can be cool.

From Costa Adeje you can go to Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife, where it will also take at least one day to see the sights. It is worth seeing the local opera house Auditorio de Tenerife, a building of unusual design and interior decoration. Museum of nature and man, where there are amazing exhibitions with mummies and life-sized animals. Ancient castles of the 14th and 16th centuries - in a word, you can roam and roam around the capital of the island.
