El Puertito is one of the few remaining authentic fishing villages in the tourist area of South Tenerife. The village consists of no more than around 20 houses and is situated directly on a romantic bay with small caves and fishing boats.

Only few houses are for rent, we stayed at La Casa del Capitán directly on the small beach.

Despite Tenerife's flourishing tourism, El Puertito has been largely overlooked by tourists. It has remained largely untouched and still maintains its traditional Canarian fishing village vibe.

The beach of El Puertito de Adejeis located in one of the most beautiful bays on the south coast and is perfect for snorkeling, attracting many diving clubs. The reason is the crystal-clear water with a stunning underwater view. Until recently, it was also known for the presence of a few sea turtles, but they have now disappeared.

Perhaps we were just lucky, or this beach is just at its best in October. It's part of a charming fishing village, a short walk from Bahia Principe Sunlight Hotel and provides an excellent contrast back to nature.
The sea water was sparkling and the small bay felt safe for swimming as long as it's not as the tide changes.
We saw a few boats anchored and no place seems complete without the one off noisy boat and a couple of jet boards. To be fair the noise was short-lived.
The beach has grey sand and there are some rocky patches. I wore my beach shoes to protect my toes.
There is a gorgeous café.... we loved it so much that a morning coffee turned into a carafe of sangria and then special meal of the day followed by more coffee!
The beach was fairly narrow and when the tide came in it reached up to the sea wall. Probably best not to venture in the sea at that point, but a great excuse for another sangria or coffee!
Yes, there is an improvised camp at the top, not in sight from the beach. It's rather endearing and it looked like there were signs asking for no more large developments on the disused banana plantation. It seemed anyone could rock up and stay, and it all looked well ordered. Each to their own.
In el Puertito it's possible to walk along the coast path, through a narrow path between beautiful houses which are built into the cliff place - truly magical.

The bay is filled with boats parking so forget about the turtles here. The beach itself is nice but due to boats there is not much room for swimming. There are some nice snorkelling spots on the left side by the cliffs but you need to watch out for boats..

This could be a delightful hideaway. Unfortunately, there is a large community of hippies/travelling people who have taken over most of the space in spite of many notices stating that camping and overnight stays are prohibited. The area is litter ridden and extremely untidy. Dog mess is also a problem. This is a wasted space which could be so much more attractive.

Used to be a nice place. Quaint little beach and Tapas cafe, nice cheap menu, good  cold beer, remote, beach not too crowded. Nice view of cove, occasionally visited by bikers, scuba divers and the yachting type. Recently it has become totally overrun by weekend tourists, boaters, hippies from neighboring barranco and caravan campers. You can't find a seat and there are dogs running all over the beach leaving their business everywhere. The road leading to the beach is lined with rental cars and the large vacant lot behind is overflowing with caravans , tents and makeshift dwellings of all types. The usually friendly waiter is totally overwhelmed and takes forever to take your order and longer to collect the bill. No longer recommendable, not worth the trip!

This is a lovely little bay, with a number of boats stopping off here to swim in the clear, calm water. There is a small cave which looked nice, be careful of the current near this!
The road to the bay is a bit windy and feels off the beaten track, the buildings are a little rustic and there is an ugly warehouse looking building, but there are also some stunning white houses, typical of Spain, places built into the cliff front and a delightful cafe where my fiance and sisters'in law relaxed, whilst us boys went swimming. There are also a number of caravan places near by, don't be put off, its a very safe feeling, beautiful location.

The beach is sandy and there are not too many big waves, the water is calm (or was when i went at least). I didn't see any turtles, which was sad as I spent a few hours swimming about looking for them, but there are loads of beautiful fish and some interesting finds at the bottom of the bay (if you can hold you breath long enough or dive).

In summary, its a great location, worth a trip if you fancy a day of something a bit different to the tourist beach locations. It has a cafe if you wish to have a drink, but bare in mind its not a huge tourist hotspot so don't expect that. There are diving experiences you can do, not sure where you can book these, but its possible!

We had heard that this place was nice so drove down to spend an afternoon there, we stayed about 6 minutes! You park on a stone path overlooked on both sides by rundown caravans and motorhomes surrounded by piles of rubbish. We left nothing in the car! We walked down a path past a derelict building to what was supposed to be a lovely untouched cove. It was just a derelict mess with graffiti, bad building repairs and very little , if anything, that was appealing or nice. We sat at a dirty table in a filthy cafe for a minute before deciding to leave. If this place wasn’t on the beach it would be described as a squalid shanty town, but for some reason because it’s on the coast it gets good reviews and “shows what life used to be like in teneriffe”.

Walked from Playa Adeje, past the Hippy Colony nestled in the caves overlooking beautiful coves, and arrived at El Puertito which has a small cafe which serves food and drinks on the quayside, a complete contrast to the hotels in Costa Adeje. A lovely walk.
