This is an upmarket area, and lots of development has taken place, resulting in some big more expensive hotels being built. The prices of everything here reflects this but it is still an area worth visiting, As you would expect there are plenty of facilities too.
The beach area is safe and well patrolled by the lifeguards. There is a great coastal walk that passes through many other beaches, all of which have their own character, and are well worth exploring.
The views are stunning too.

Visited playa del Duque as a couple. Lovely intimate, sandy beach in southern Tenerife on the costa Adeje. Got there about 10.30 and many if the beds were already in use. However, we got a cabana sun bed. Seems populated more by adults than children. Sun beds are around €25 for two and the cabanas were €55 - prices being for the whole day. Fixed sun shades also present. The beach is big enough though that you can just arrive and use your own towels. Some beach traders present walking around and trying to sell you their wares. Can be annoying but also convenient if you want something. Drinks sellers walking around shouting “coca, Fanta, birra” but I think you’ll find that in most tourist beaches now. Masseurs offering massages at various prices. We had a back and neck massage which was €10 for around 15 minutes. The cocktail guy was also a welcome trader supplying string, well made mojitos for €5 each. The bay to the beach was surrounded each end by rocks and depending on the time of day the waves can be quite big with strong currents but balance that against other times where the water is quite calm. There is a beach bar if you’re hungry and shops within a short walking distance. A lovely sun trap and a lovely day spent in the sun on the beach. Will definitely be coming back

Best beach in the area - extremely clean with well maintained toilets and a nice selection of cafes and restaurants close by.

We decided to rent a cabana bed for the day (55EUR), which was totally worth it for a bit of luxury. These didn’t start to fill up until about 12-1pm however the sun beds/parasols were getting busy around 10.30-11pm.

The people selling drinks/towels/massages do get a bit annoying after a while but is to be expected on any of these beaches.

The beach is beautiful at Del Duque but our experience was spoilt by the fruit sellers & massage ladies who are constantly going up & down the beach all day trying to sell their wares. I get that they have to make a living but it was constant & spoilt the relaxing atmosphere & got very annoying. We had paid €19 for 2 sunbeds & a parasol (which is quite pricey compared to other beaches) & whilst we were at lunch we could see the fruit sellers sitting on our sunbeds (on our towels!) which was just not acceptable at all! We tried to complain to the sunbeds hirer but she wasn't interested and the whole thing totally spoilt our experience of this beach & we didn't go again for the rest of our holiday. Such a shame because it's a lovely beach.

Visited just in the evening for the sunset, unfortunately it was covered by a mass of clouds that came from nowhere but it would still be an amazing place to watch it. Beach seemed clean, few rocks and stones to navigate. A few people seemed to be trying to set up massive parachutes to go gliding which was entertaining to watch!

Good beach in a very nice setting with safe access to the sea, lots of sun beds to hire although not the cheapest. However avoid the beach bar it’s a rip off, very overpriced for very average food. A small dish, and I mean small, of fries is over 5 euros, a half jug of what they call Sangria ( coloured lemonade ) 12.5 euros. Looks a nice place but is poor.

This was such a great beach. We spent 3 days out of our 7 day holiday there. Kids can swim safely in the sea (weather permitting) and all the facilities you need are right there - restaurants, ice cream vendors, and very regularly maintained toilets. We hired a cabana for €55 for a bit of luxury. These tend to be full up by 10.30am. Beach vendors are present all the time, but they weren’t pushy at all. We actually made the most of them and bought cocktails (€5 each!), fresh fruit, a beach blanket, hair braiding, and a massage (when in Rome!). Honestly some of the best beach days we’ve had as a family.

Great beach to visit for the day. Two sun loungers and an umbrella are €19.05 for the day (you can even pay on card). Get down around 9.30 to make sure you don’t miss out. Great cocktails for €5 from the sellers walking round. Fantastic massages €10 for 15 mins €20 for 30. My favourite was the lady with newspaper top and my other half liked the lady with the pink top and hat. Toilets available from around 10am. Sea is lovely and calm behind a rock wall breaker. Great day all round.

I absolutely hate going to the beach, but this one it's an exception! It's very calm and quiet.. even if it's full of people all the time, you can relax easily.. but what I loved the most was the fruit man lol (I do really suggest you to buy coconuts, watermelon and ananas from these men during the summer season, their fruits are the best!)

Quite a small beach, easily crowded and lounge chairs are quite expensive. Much better to go to Fanabe beach which is much nicer. Fanabe beach also has a lot more food options around
