Costa Adeje

Apparently the Beckhams are big fans of Costa Adeje, on Tenerife’s south coast in the Canary Islands. It’s hardly surprising, what with the luxury villas, five-star hotels, designer shopping and waterfront restaurants. And the place has even got its own waterfall. It’s all about laidback sophistication here – though the party bars and clubs of Playa de las Americas are just a stone’s throw away should you want them.

Playa de la Arena

You can leave the hustle and bustle behind at Playa de la Arena. This small, quiet place on Tenerife’s west coast takes things gently, from the uncrowded beach to the low-key bars and restaurants. You’re also well placed for some great walks along rugged Canary Island coastline and through volcanic landscapes – and close to some of the island’s best sights.

Playa de las Americas

Set on Tenerife’s southwest coast in the Canary Islands, Playa de las Americas is a purpose-built resort that comes with great clubbing credentials. The year-round sun and multiple sandy beaches also pull in the Brit crowds. And then there are the duty-free shops, some great tapas restaurants, a waterpark on the doorstep and the upmarket resort of Los Cristianos just next door.

Puerto de Santiago

Puerto de Santiago sits between Los Gigantes and Playa de la Arena on the west coast of Tenerife. The quiet, whitewashed town sits on a rugged hillside that tumbles down to a tiny black sandy beach. It’s very laidback here, with just bars, restaurants and a little fishing museum. And its neighbours are in walking distance, so you get rather a good 3-in-1 deal.

Los Cristianos

Los Cristianos is the main port town on Tenerife’s south coast. Until the Seventies, its harbour was teeming with shipping boats loading up rum and salted fish. Nowadays, it’s yachts, ferries and glass-bottom boats that come and go, while luxury apartment blocks and restaurants have sprung up along the picturesque seafront.

Guia de Isora

Guia de Isora, on Tenerife’s west coast, is an up-and-coming resort with an old-school Canary Islands feel. The main town is a quiet affair up in the mountains, with sweeping views of the Atlantic. Down by the sea is Playa San Juan, home to a small harbour and a chic prom. And next door is Alcala, a fishing village with a pretty main square.

Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes is a pretty seaside town on Tenerife’s southwest coast. It’s nestled into the rock face, with dramatic 300-metre cliffs called The Giants running off to the north. Life moves at a leisurely pace, with the marina being the hub of the town – you’ll find relaxed bars and restaurants here, with views over the black volcanic sand of Los Guios Beach.

Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz sits on Tenerife’s north coast, amid a landscape of tropical fruit plantations. There’s a traditional feel to the place, with its quaint harbour and pretty old town, but it does sophistication well, too. Nouveau cuisine's served in Colonial-style restaurants, while the bars mix cocktails with singers from across the Canary Islands. As for the coastal scene, you’ve got a duo of architect-designed beaches to enjoy.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Santa Cruz differs a little from Tenerife's classic beach-based resorts. It’s the joint capital of the Canary Islands, and delivers a bustling city feel in place of the usual laidback vibe. The harbourside’s always buzzing, with cruise ships dropping anchor and ferries setting sail for neighbouring islands. Dig into the centre, and you’ll find museums, pretty botanical gardens and high street fashion brands balled together.

Golf del Sur

Golf del Sur began life as a private resort – and it shows. This peaceful town nestles into Tenerife’s southern corner, and comes surrounded by golf courses and a glossy marina. Scoops of black-sand and pebble beaches are cut from the rocky coastline, and smart hotels follow in their wake. In the east, you’ll find the compact town centre and its assortment of top-shelf lounge bars, pubs and pan-global restaurants. The lively duo of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas are only a 20-minute drive away, too.
