Costa Adeje has two blue flagged beaches to choose from. Playa Fañabe, a dark volcanic strip, and Playa del Duque, where the golden sand has been imported from the Sahara.

Once filled with black volcanic sand, now covered in fine golden sand which gently slopes down into the sea, the beach has been awarded the blue flag for its cleanliness and clear, stone free waters. Similar to Playa Fañabe Beach the break waters mean that the Atlantic ocean waves are much weaker than other beaches. The wide promenade stretches the full length of the sand with plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and ice cream kiosks to choose from.
