Abades is a small village of white houses that look all alike, which lies between the desert and the ocean. It has a sandy beach, in front of which there are a few bars and restaurants, a fruit shop, a mini market and a diving center.


You can walk along the seaside and reach more small beaches, wild and solitary, hidden between cliffs. There are easy paths that can be done walking or in a jeep to visit the old leper colony town, an interesting site where you can take nice pictures at the old unfinished buildings, and most of all at the majestic church. In fact, today, the leper town, also called "ghost town", is a favourite set for hobbyst or professional photographers.


Sitting behind the village of Abades, you can see a mountain chain; the road to Mount Teide is easy to take and you'll be up there in no time! Mount Teide is actually a volcano and its landscape is a natural protected area that offers unique views, among which the incredible "sea of clouds". All around the village, all you see is the ocean and the rocky desert dotted with colourful desert plants, where lie the many wind farm white blades, gently turning non-stop.


Unlike any other place in Tenerife, here you won't find neither hotels nor bad looking built-up areas, fruit of the building speculation of the past years. This is a unique place where silence rules. If you reach a vantage point, all you can see is a lighthouse near the sea (el faro de Punta de Abona), the typical plants of Cardon and Tabaiba, the blue sky and probably a small hawk fluttering about in search of preys, the Cernicalo.


If you love windsurfing, kytesurfing etc., only 15 minutes away from Abades there is the beach town of El Medano, with its large windy shore, where you'll find surf centers that offer surf classes at all levels. In the town of Arico, only five minutes from Abades, you'll find a rock climbing center. In the area it's also practiced parapente and the clean paths in the desert all around Abades are perfect for jogging, mountain byke, motocross, quad... you can be sure that this is the sporty person's paradise!


Only 20 minutes southward, you can reach the famous beach towns of Los Cristianos and Las Americas, the heart of the mass-tourism of Tenerife, where you can find all kinds of restaurants, discos, pubs, fun parks, zoos and so on. 30 kilometers north you'll reach the Capital City of Tenerife, Santa Cruz, a modern city that's worth visiting.
