We didn’t spot any obvious sign that we’d left the holiday resort of Los Cristianos and entered Playa de Las Américas at the far end of Playas de Las Vistas. We wandered through the shopping centres of C.C. Nuevo Mar and C.C. Oasis treating ourselves to an ice cream, before continuing our walk along the Paseo Marítimo in the direction of Costa Adeje.

We looked back one more time over Playa de Las Vistas towards Los Cristianos before rounding the headland to see what Playa de Las Américas had to offer.

Playa El Camisón is a small beach in comparison to the two we had just covered. It’s picturesque though with tikki style beach umbrellas. The grass banking was popular with sunbathers and family picnics, for those preferring to relax by the sea without the sand between their toes.

It’s quite a popular beach, with a few basic pedalos available for hire.

On the other side of the breakwater there was a surf school right on the beach and a bit further on the promenade split into two, we took the one following the curve of the rocky coastline.

Where we found some interesting art, a seawater swimming pool and a private beach area for one of the hotels.

The promenade started to open up with some different shops and there was another surf school along this stretch of the resort.

At this point we’d been walking along the coast for a couple of hours, so we decided to make our way back cutting through the resort to our car which was parked at the far side of Los Cristianos.


We’ll have to explore Costa Adeje on another visit.
