Callao Salvaje

If you are planning your Callao Salvaje holidays the following information may help by giving you an overview of the resort.

Callao Salvaje is a small self contained residential town and holiday resort, that is part of the municipal district of Adeje on the west coast of Tenerife – hidden away between the resorts of Playa Paraiso and Playa de La Arena and approximately 12km north west of the infamous resort of Playa de las Americas.

For those visitors arriving at the Reina Sofia International Airport in the south of the island, the 26km or 16 mile journey to your Callao Salvaje hotel is a fairly short one, and should usually take no more than around 40 – 45 minutes along the main TF-1 motorway. Being one of Tenerife’s newest resort destinations that does not as yet feature in any of the major tour operators brochures, most visitors on their Callao Salvaje holiday will undoubtedly be independent travellers who will make this transfer either by pre-booked hire car, or alternatively by one of the many taxis from the ranks outside of the arrivals hall.

Once you are in Callao Salvaje, and have settled in to your hotel or apartment, you will very quickly realise that Callao Salvaje was originally a small village that has over the past few years undergone a very rapid transformation. This development was carried out at a phenomenal pace to meet the ever increasing demand for both residential and holiday homes.

For those visitors on self catering breaks, Callao Salvaje has a couple of fair sized SPAR type supermarkets. The resort also has a fair selection of good quality, and reasonably priced, restaurants which supplement those provided “in house” at many of the apartment and aparthotel complexes in the area. For a wider selection, also worth considering is that Playa de las Americas is only 10 minutes away by taxi from the resort centre.

Beaches in Callao Salvaje

The main town beach is quite small which is described in the few guides that have been written about Callao Salvaje as being “a mixture of sand and pebbles”. However, in reality the beach is little more than a mass of pebbles with few, if any facilities, and would have a very limited appeal to families with children. For most visitors to Callao Salvaje, the lack of a decent beach isn’t really too much of an issue, instead preferring to use the resort as a convenient base from which to explore more of the island. Callao Salvaje’s close proximity to the Tenerife motorway system makes getting about fairly easy, whether it’s heading north into the Tiede National Park or south towards to more lively resort areas, few destinations are more than a 45 minute drive away.
