Abades is a delightful white washed village lying on the east coast of Tenerife almost half way from Las Americas to the capitol,Santa cruz de Tenerife.The village can be seen from exit no42 on the TF1,,and is instantly recognized by its look alike houses.Abades is a purpose built village,deliberately organized by the local council some 30 years ago to prevent illegal houses springing up around the natural beach..On arrival you will find ample free parking.First to note is the free BBQ area perched over looking the small boat slip way,,,,moving along the walk way brings you to the steps leading down to the natural beach(see photo)there is a second beach mainly used by naturists on the other side of the promontory.The village square holds a number of eating hoses(casas de comida),where a variety of foods are served,,,an excellent Italian restaurant serving fresh pasta,,,a pizza bar that also serves excellent English style fish and chips,!!!.next is Anepa,run by Carlos who,s specialty is a full sized fish platter called Gallo,,,next is a red bar locally known as Jonas,after the owner,,there you can find breakfast bocadillos (rolls),,(my favorite is bacon an egg!)and finally in the far corner beside the diving center is a BBQ take away,,(do try the chicken and chips)cooked fresh every day over a wood BBQ.The whole area is family friendly with a small children's area in the plaza easily visible from wherever the parents chose to sit.All in all a Canarian village well worth a visit.
