Averages for Costa Adeje in March
The island of Tenerife is known for the incredible amount of sunshine it receives throughout the year and Costa Adeje is the sunniest coast on the island.
Although March is the tail end of the winter months, the weather at this time of the year is still warm and pleasant. Hours of sun and high temperatures can still be enjoyed, even in March.
Prevailing winds blowing from the Sahara will influence the climate. Generally, Costa Adeje is an ideal holiday destination at this time of year, especially if you want to escape chilly, wintry conditions back home.
At this time of year, the average temperature is 18°C, with highs of 21°C and lows of 14°C. There's 55mm of average rainfall for the whole month. The average sea temperature is a pleasant 19°C and there are around 9 hours of sunshine each day.
Dates for the diary
The Passion in Adeje and Candelaria, an alternative Semana Santa celebration, takes place in Adeje town. Over 300 of the townsfolk take part in an ambitious piece of street theatre depicting the last hours of Jesus Christ.
Things to do
Helicopter rides with Helidream Canarias are one of the latest attractions to come to Tenerife and provide you with a fantastic way to see the island. This Adeje-based company offers a number of different trips, with something to suit all budgets. You can choose from short journeys which fly over the valleys and the coasts or medium flights which cover golf courses and Mount Teide. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you can even book an island-wide flight which includes lunch in a popular restaurant and a surprise after landing.
Horse riding is a firm favourite with tourists and locals alike in Costa Adeje and another way to explore the area if you get tired of shelping around on foot. Club Hipico Tenerife is one of the biggest equestrian centres on the island and caters to both beginners and more experienced riders, with a variety of different hacks and trails.
Where to eat & drink
Tapas is a traditional dish of the Canary Islands and not many do it better than Restaurante Sebastian. Located in Torviscas Bajo, this eatery offers an extensive menu, with meat- and fish-based dishes, pizzas and side orders available. The house speciality is certainly the tapas, which come in a variety of forms, including mixed cheese and meats, homemade pate, fried baby squid, spinach with chorizo and pear-filled ravioli.
Without a doubt, Lineker’s Bar is one of the best places in Playa de Las Americas for sports fans. Here you’ll find more than 26 plasma screen TVs inside the bar and on the outside terrace which are capable of showing all live sporting events from around the world. Come nightfall, the bar drops its sports image in favour of a lively nightclub atmosphere as visitors take to the stage to dance until the early hours.
Where to stay
When it comes to family-friendly accommodation in Costa Adeje, El Duque Aparthotel is one of the best. This recently-renovated complex is divided into nine buildings which are home to the selection of standard and superior studios and apartments. There are loads of amenities for the whole family to enjoy, such as swimming pool, children’s pool, restaurant with kids’ menu, bar, playground, entertainment programme and 24-hour reception.
Club Atlantis Apartments have a fantastic location, close to the beach as well as to the more touristy, developed areas. Though not very family friendly like El Duque, it’s ideal for older travellers or couples seeking a bit of peace and quiet.
