Nice place to stroll around, very expensive designer shops and 5 star hotels. Not much Spanish culture, tradition or architecture is evident in this area.

A lovely beach and the beach umbrellas and loungers are spread out so you are not on top of your neighbour. Fruits and drink sellers patrol the beach all day long but what is missing is a snack cabin/shop. There is a beach bar but...More

We stayed further down the coast at Puerto colon which is much more down market than the del duque area. Would definitely recommend it for a more up market holiday

We were told this is the best beach in the area so we went with some expectations. Not particularly a hot day, we arrived to find a small overcrowded beach. Sand was rough. Seems to attract a particular type of guest - mostly oblivious to...More

If staying on the beach such as Playa Del Duque , which airport does one select for r/t nonstop from Madrid on a carrier such as Iberia?
July 18, 2015|
Response fromDaisyEngland|
There are 2 airports in Tenerife. One in the north of the island and one in the south. The one in the south of the island (Reina Sofia) is much closer to Del Duque. Whether or not Iberia offer this option I don't know. The south airport is the international airport.

Cheap tat shop (2 Replies)
I'm looking for a cheap tat shop, like a pound shop, usually run by Chinese people. I'm hoping to buy an unusual money belt that I've only ever seen in such shops. Adeje or La Caleta or Playa del Duque area. Is it impolite in Spanish to call it a Chino?
