Callao Salvaje is a great little holiday resort in the Adeje region of Tenerife on the west coast. It is hidden away on the coast around 12km from the famous Playa de las Americas, and has yet to grace the brochures of mass tourist operators due to its recent arrival on the holiday scene. This means that those who take self catering Callao Salvaje apartments tend to be independent and rent property directly from the owner, and find themselves in a haven of peace amongst the popular resorts of the coast.
Callao Salvaje has a small pebble beach, although there are not a huge range of tourist facilities, but this only adds to the exclusive and laid back atmosphere in the resort. However, if you would like the full beach experience that guides to Tenerife are filled with, Playa de las Americas is only 10 minutes away from a villa in Callao Salvaje, and an artificial beach is in the latter stages of development, so should be completed within the next few years.
A self catering apartment in Callao Salvaje is the perfect base for exploration of the island. It is easy to reach the motorway from Callao Salvaje, and from the top of the beautiful Tiede National Park to the beaches of the east coast, you can reach your destination in a maximum of 50 minutes. This includes golf courses, of which the closest is just five minutes away; the Coast Adeje golf course.
Tenerife is famed for its water sports, and there are plenty to be found from Callao Salvaje. The diving is particularly spectacular, and there is plenty around to fill every minute of a family holiday. There are two water parks, theme parks, a zoo, go-karting tracks, fishing trips and dolphin and whale watching.
The infamous Playa de las Americas is within 10 minutes of a villa in Callao Salvaje, so if the abundant and lively bars of Callao Salvaje are not quite enough, there are some huge clubs to be found just a short taxi journey away. The resort also offers every sport and leisure facility you could possibly wish for on holiday, as well as camel rides!
The Costa Adeje, upon which Callao Salvaje lies, is a luxurious region blessed with beautiful scenery and a stunning coastline.
