The huge holiday area of the southwestern coast of Tenerife starts at Puerto Santiago, which also means that the town boasts a lot of hotels and holiday homes, but the result of this is that it is overbuilt, which detracts from the beauty of the place to some extent. However, Puerto de Santiago isn’t nearly as noisy and hectic as Los Gigantes and Playa la Arena.
On the western side of Tenerife there is a small village, Masca, which has extraordinary assets. Beautiful sights await the traveler in Masca: the cliffs, the ravines, the ocean, the hilly landscape, the typical buildings, and the palm trees give an indescribable and unforgettable experience. Masca, the forgotten village, lies amid beautiful surroundings.
Costa Adeje became a separate holiday resort from Playa de las Americas in the recent years.

Costa Adeje lays only a few kilometres north from Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos. Besides the beautiful beaches, fancy shops, restaurant and hotels, there's a lot to explore in and around this wonderful city.
