When travelling to a tourist hotspot, it can be difficult to know how to uncover the precious hidden gems it offers. Our team at Prestige Holidays has taken the time to find them for you – if you’re looking for a unique holiday filled with hidden beaches and rustic relaxation, read on to discover the side of Tenerife they don’t show you in the travel brochure.
La Caleta de Adeje
This dreamy little fishing town on the west coast of Tenerife is perfect for free spirits who want to unearth hidden treasures – and what better place to do a little digging than the beach? There is one in the area that is lovely, relaxing and, despite its lesser-known status, well worth visiting. It goes by many names, most commonly Playa de la Diego Hérnandez or Playa Blanca.
What makes this beach so unique are the inhabitants who call it home – ‘hippies’ who have turned their back on capitalism and social obligations and choose to live in small huts and tents on the sandy shore instead. They give the beach a colourful, friendly atmosphere and, if you catch them at the right moment, you might even get treated to an impromptu concert.
Where to Stay
If you’re not keen on camping out, don’t worry – there are other suitable accommodation options in Tenerife. Resorts are plentiful, but we recommend staying at Royal Hideaway Corales Beach Hotel in La Caleta. This adults-only hotel is just a ten-minute drive from the city centre and offers restaurants supervised by Michelin Star chefs, breath-taking ocean-view rooms and heated saltwater pools. Chic, spacious and comfortable, the Royal Hideaway Corales is the perfect stylish hideaway for you.
