Playa del Duque is a Blue Flag beach sitting on the southwest coast of Tenerife. An upmarket option tucked back from the open waves of the Atlantic Ocean, its shallows are protected on one side by a short rocky promontory and on the other by an artificial seawall which separates it from Playa El Beril.

Part of the Costa Adeje, Playa del Duque is one of the island’s busiest beaches, although there are still usually plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas to go around. It stretches for around 200 metres. The promenade provides plenty of opportunity for refreshment, with bars, cafés and restaurants lining most of its length.

The beach’s broad expanse of golden sands sweep down into turquoise waters, although these do drop to shoulder height relatively quickly. However, parking is available within a stone’s throw of its sands and several bus routes also take in Playa del Duque.

Early to mid-morning and late afternoons are the best times to visit Playa del Duque, with the beach well-known for its sunsets on clear days.

Facilities include toilets, changing rooms and showers.
