Adeje’s Fiestas Patronales in honour of the Virgen de la Encarnación start this Saturday, 1 October, with a whole range of events being held until 16 October.

As Arona’s mayor Mena promised, the municipality’s beaches have been treated as a priority, and not only have they recovered their precious Blue Flags, playa de Las Vistas has now also regained Aenor’s Universal Accessibility Certificate, a distinction that the council says guarantees equal opportunities for the use and enjoyment of the beach.
