Travel Agents Viewsuitable for couples and families seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday
A small fishing village located within the Costa Adeje area, suitable for couples and families seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday. The beach here is mainly pebbles and there are large rocks which are popular for diving from, some of the most popular spots have ladders attached to the rocks to make getting back out of the water a little easier. The crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkelling.
One of the more sedate resorts in the area, there's not too much in the way of night-life, there are a few bars and restaurants along the seafront but for livelier nights out and entertainment Play de las Americas is just a short taxi ride away.
The main roads in and out of the resort head inland rather than along the coast, although there are picturesque walking paths along the coast line with the paths connecting to the next resort, Playa El Duque and continuing as far along as Los Cristianos. Heading in the opposite direction from La Caleta the walking trails are slightly rougher and lead to 'Hippy Bay' which is favoured by nudists and the occasional camper.
Reina Sofia Airport is approx 28 km from the resort.
Insider's Viewyou can still get a cheap bottle of Dorada and a feel for La Caleta's fishing harbour credentials
be prepared to pay out for taxis to Playa de las AmÃ©ricas. The only night life here is in the nets of the fishermen.
Just two years ago, I could have said that walking from the resorts of Costa Adeje to the tiny fishing cove of La Caleta is like visiting a different planet. But now developments have crept along the coast at such a pace that you can't see the join.
Despite the encroachment of the rest of Costa Adeje, La Caleta still remains my favourite place along this stretch of coast to go for tapas and seafood at any of the restaurants that line the balcony over the sea. I'm looking forward to trying some of the fabulously stylish new restaurants that have opened up behind the harbour too and I love Rosso Sul Mare's terrace for coffee even though my purse faints at the sight of the menu. But the best place to go for a beer is at the small bars behind the tiny beach where you can still get a cheap bottle of Dorada and a feel for La Caleta's fishing harbour credentials while they last.
The 'new' beach in front of the Sheraton leaves a lot to be desired. Itâ€™s really uncomfortable to walk on in bare feet as one half is black shingle and the other is like builders' sand with sharp little stones in it. It's also currently the only way to walk along the coast from El Duque to La Caleta so it's a sort of highway.
In terms of entertainment, you'll have to be content with a bottle of wine, the sunsets and the stars or be prepared to pay out for taxis to Playa de las AmÃ©ricas. The only night life here is in the nets of the fishermen.
My advice? La Caleta is destined to continue to develop at a dizzying rate. If you want tranquillity with your sunshine, get in now while it still has its charm.
