Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced that the regional territorial council has approved a number of plans under the PMMI, the plan for improvements and growth which could see upgrades to zones in Callao Salvaje, Playa Paraíso and La Caleta in the near future. According to the Adeje councillor in charge of urban development, José María Álvarez Acosta (above), the plans would be part of a regeneration of tourist areas and establishments in the borough.

“The plan opens up the door to a range of possibilities to ensure that the borough of Adeje continues to be a competitive destination, both from a tourism point of view as well as from the business development viewpoint. The full document will give Adeje room to develop and act which is a step forward and will benefit everyone in the borough”, he said.

The plan addresses “projects covering public and private spaces in terms of improvements that will energise the tourist centre along the lines of the overall territorial plan”. Among the potential projects that the plan could see activated are the creation of a new maritime pathway along La Enramada in La Caleta, improvements to the access path by Las Salinas in Playa Paraíso and the creation of a proper pathway along the Callao Salvaje coastline. There is also approval for street upgrades to Calle La Lava in Callao Salvaje, and improvements to the pedestrian area by the Ajabo beach and the link between Callao Salvaje and Playa Paraíso.

There is mention of improvements and changes to certain sections of Calle Las Artes in La Caleta and Calle El Jable in Callao Salvaje and finally the plan has approved the project to build a road connecting the Iboibo sector with the village of Callao Salvaje.


  1. Good afternoon Janet.
    Thank You for your so good website! 🙂
    Have you news or somebody knows something about this plan in Playa Paraiso in the Costa Adeje?
    Because we see nothing since March 😉

      I don’t have any further news, no … these plans will be carried out over time, and I would think that time can be measured in a few years rather than months.

  2. I do agree with Jane Gardner, the ‘skeleton buildings’ in Callao Salvaje are a blot on the landscape, and they should be pulled down.

  3. Let’s hope something will be done about the old merlin hotel and the two half built buildings which are in the centre of Callao Salvaje too they are not a pretty sight

  4. I hope the new maritime pathway along La Enramada in La Caleta is better thought out than the previous `upgrade` for the beach area which saw the original pebbled beach bar, pebbles and habitats replaced by the yellow sanded beach subsequently washed away. It is pleasing to see that nature is reinstalling the pebbled habitat area.
