A long ribbon of dark sand on the Costa Adeje of Tenerife’s southwest coast, Playa Fanabe is one of the best all-round beaches on this side of the island. Calm waters make paddling with little ones a joy, while a lifeguard presence provides an extra feeling of security.

Another of Tenerife’s Blue Flag beaches, Playa Fanabe is also one of its more upmarket options, meaning it generally has a quieter vibe than beaches elsewhere on Tenerife. The emphasis therefore tends to be on soaking up the sun from a lounger by day rather than taking part in water sports, although both banana boats and jet skis are available. Come nightfall, the beachfront is all about classy cocktail bars rather than dusk till dawn dancing.

When you start to get hungry, there are plenty of options, from recognisable international fast-food chains to smaller local establishments. Sloped walkways make it easy for those with limited mobility to get to and from the beach. For those visiting for the day, there are locker rooms with showers and toilets.
