Adeje is on the southern coast of Tenerife and it’s home to many chic hotels and bars.

A recent addition to Tenerife’s gay scene. Fiji Beach Club hosts regular gay events which attract a large LGBT crowd. The club itself offers a great atmosphere with regular live DJ – mostly playing chill-out music.

You can hire 2 sun loungers with an umbrella, and spend the day on the beach for only 15 Euros, or why not spoil yourself with a big bali bed for 2 on the beach with food and drinks for 60€?

An ideal place to have cocktails on the beach.
