We discover one of the best beaches in Tenerife Costa Adeje. Located within the Costa Adeje area, Torviscas is nestled between Fañabé and San Eugenio, Torviscas is a popular choice for families and couples seeking a fun and relaxing holiday.
The first thing to note about the area is its 2 blue flag beaches. The long stretches of sand are ideal for relaxing in the Tenerife sunshine, the beaches have good facilities such as sun loungers and umbrellas for hire and nearby bars and restaurants.
Dining options here cater for all tastes and budgets with a variety of restaurants serving international and local cuisines. There are also many bars to enjoy an evening drink or two.
There are many water based activities, for instance a water park, diving excursions and boat tours from the marina.
Transfer time from the airport is approx 25 minutes.
Torviscas, San Eugenio and Fañabe all sort of run into each other and it can be confusing where one ends and another begins. I think of it as the further west you go, the more upmarket the bars, restaurants and hotels become. If San Eugenio represents the less fancy end of the scale and Fañabe the posh neighbour, Torviscas lies in between the two, both geographically, and in who it would appeal to.
Nightlife in Tenerife
There are budget restaurants and Brit bars, but there are also classically elegant Spanish restaurants and chic bars and clubs. One of the best is El Faro, overlooking the little bay and marina at Puerto Colón in the heart of the resort, where the trendies go. At the In and Out beach restaurant with its perfect beachside location, you can watch Soundchaser perform; possibly the best rock band on the island.
I’ve been won over by Torviscas’ charms and I think it’s perfect for visitors who like to have the best of both worlds; friendly but basic bars and a super stylish scene. There are also some nice little touches around the resort that give Torviscas its own identity, like the green floating iceberg water park; it looks ridiculous, but it’s brilliant fun and will keep the kids occupied while you chill over a glass of white.
Area of Torviscas Beach
The resort also has the coolest sun loungers on the island on Torviscas Playa, but you’ll have to part with the equivalent of the cost of a main course at a nearby restaurant to enjoy them.
And the must-sees? There’s a marina, so you know that guarantees loads of boats trips, but the real Bond activity to try out here is to slip into a BOB. Before you panic, that’s not as disturbing as it might sound. BOB stands for Breathing Observation Bubble and is the way to get to enjoy Tenerife’s undersea world without shelling for a PADI course.
