The village of Callao Salvaje is a quiet resort with a mix of residential and tourist accommodations with plenty of amenities including supermarket, bank, pharmacy and shops as well as a wide range of reasonably priced restaurants, making it a popular choice for couples and families.

The beach here is fairly small with limited facilities, Fanabe is just 10 minutes away and offers stunning beaches with a long promenade filled with bars and restaurants which may suit families better.

For golf enthusiasts there are several courses in the surrounding area with Costa Adeje golf course approx a 5 minute drive away.

Insider's View

Tenerife Insider The lack of a beach doesn't do the 'village' any favours in attracting visitors

there's something of a strong French connection in Callao Salvaje which is rare on Tenerife

People who live in Callao Salvaje refer to it as a village. It's not my idea of a village - either British or Spanish, but it's probably as close to one as a purpose built resort can get and it has a nice feeling of community.

A welcome addition to the resort which is currently 'under construction' is the new beach that promises to breath seaside life into the place, but it's being built to Tenerife deadlines so don't put your towel down just yet! Meanwhile there are some pleasant hot spots to get prone and soak up the sun. I like the Balinese-style beds around the swimming pool complex of Le Privilege Beach Club at the far western edge of town. It takes a bit of finding but it's worth it. It's very reasonable to get in and there's a nice chill-out area too. They have occasional live shows on Sundays but I've never been to one so I can't vouch for them.

I'd be lying if I said Callao Salvaje was one of my favourite places on Tenerife, but it does get an international mix of visitors and residents which makes the choice of bars and restaurants a bit more interesting. In one row you'll find Canarian, Italian, British and French... quite a choice for such a small resort.

In fact, there's something of a strong French connection in Callao Salvaje which is rare on Tenerife. I drop into the resort if I'm passing just to visit the French bakeries which have proper croissants and baguettes. And don't miss out on the crêpes at the ice cream parlour ...oh la la!

And the must-sees? Callao Salvaje isn't going to make it onto the tourist route; there isn't much to see or do, but Callao Sport on the approach road to the resort is well worth a visit. Okay, I admit I haven't done any of the sporty bits yet but their Aztec themed spa centre is pure bliss.
