About La Caleta
La Caleta is an up and coming coastal town making up part of Costa Adeje, located in the south of Tenerife. La Caleta is still an active fishing village, and with fresh produce brought in daily, La Caleta is home to Tenerife´s finest seafood restaurants. Although it is one of Costa Adeje´s quietest towns, tourism is on the rise here. New high quality hotel complexes being completed along with some of Tenerife´s most upmarket restaurants has made La Caleta a desirable holiday destination. There are many things to do in La Caleta and its surrounding areas to enjoy a holiday here.
Things to do in La Caleta
Spend a day at one of La Caleta´s beaches
There are 2 main sandy beaches Playa de la Enramada and Playa del Veril which form the coastline between La Caleta and its neighbouring town El Duque. These beaches are ideal for sunbathing with use of paid sun loungers and a few beach bars. In the centre of La Caleta you will find Playa la Caleta, not the most desirable beach as its not very comfortable but is a nice place to snorkel. If you head off the beaten track you will find a secluded spot Playa de Diego Hernandez (hippy beach). This golden sandy beach offers breathtaking views and a chilled out atmosphere! Everyone is welcome but not many people know of its existence.
One of the best things to do in La Caleta is snorkelling in its turquoise crystal clear waters. One of the best spots in Tenerife for diving and snorkelling is El Puertito. Although technically this is in the town of Armenime, It is accessible by foot from La Caleta. If you head west past hippy beach you will find this small bay hidden from tourism. Only small yachts and diving ribs have access so it doesn´t get over crowded with hundreds of snorkellers and swimmers.
If you don´t fancy walking to the bay then boat trips are available and you can combine it with some whale and dolphin watching too. If you would rather do a snorkelling trip by boat we would recommend either the Skyline 1 or Skyline Cruiser. Both boats take a maximum of 11 people, offering a 3 hour trip to see the whales and dolphins with a 30 minute swim stop at El Puertito providing snorkels, food, drinks and transfers from your hotel or apartment.
Paragliding into La Caleta
If you have ever stayed in La Caleta before you will have seen hundreds of parachutes flying above the town. Playa de la Enramada is the landing spot for the paragliders. Get your adrenaline pumping while you fly more that 1000 meters above sea level from the Adeje mountain range. You will fly 20 – 40 minutes from the mountains to the beach in La Caleta, landing you just 10 meters away from a beach bar to enjoy a cold beer in the sun!
