Playa Fañabé beach activities

Playa Fañabé is well known for its white sand beach, which is used as a base for the many watersports on offer. There are many exciting activities to choose from- why not glide across the waters on a speedy jet ski, or fly high above ground level in a water parachute? Hold on tight during a bouncy banana boat ride, or hire out in-line skates to breezily explore the area at your own pace.



Surfing in the Fañabé/ Adeje area is popular due to its rocky reefs and good surfing opportunities during all tide positions. The Fañabé area has a low population which leads to active surfers having more space on the waves to brush up on their skills. This is also a great place to come to get a show from the experienced surfers even if you do not take part yourself.

Location: Lado del muelle harbour, La Caleta de Adeje, Adeje.

Siam Park

Dubbed `The Water Kingdom`, Siam Park has a Thai theme and a huge selection of water slides, bars and restaurants- something for the whole family. You can choose to swirl into the mouth of a giant dragon amongst your friends in a raft, or if you are brave enough, take the 28 metres plunge down the Tower of Power which takes you soaring through an underwater aquarium... watch out for the sharks! You can also catch the waves at the Wave Palace, which generates the world's biggest artificial waves, up to 3 metres high. If you need to take a breather, why not relax on Siam beach; or float away down the Mai Thai River? By now you must be working up an appetite!
