El Beril beach upgrade

adeje_img_8459-copiaTwo million euros is to be spent on the works to improve the swimming zone along the strand that flanks the El Duque beach by the Hotel Bahía del Duque. The El Beril beach will also get a facelift as part of the plan, given its location in part of the tourist zone that continues to grow in popularity.


The El Beril beach concession is owned by the Sociedad Urbanizadora El Beril S.A. and managed by Playa del Duque S.L.  According to the Adeje tourism councillor, Ermitas Moreira García and Municipal Works councillor, Carmen Rosa González Cabrera, “The work to recondition the El Beril beach is part of the overall improvements for Costa Adeje which, in recent years, have included a number of undertakings focussing on renovation and improvement in the hotel sector and public and private infrastructures”.


A representative from the CIO company, part of the management of the zone and the Bahía del Duque S.L. added, “Given that up until now this beach didn’t fully meet the needs of the growing number of users, we felt it was vital to put an improvement plan in place that could adapt the bathing zone to meet the new needs of the resident and visitor population, while also respecting the environmental needs of the area. The changes will give the area added value” he said.

The work will cost in the region of two million euros which will be met by the CIO, and will see an enlargement in the sandy zone to cater for the increased number of beach users during the year.  Using local stone, the plan is to create a dry sandy zone of 14,000 square metres.  Other changes will see three new beach accesses for people with reduced mobility, ramps throughout the beach zone, showers adapted for all users, wooden walkways, adequate rubbish bins, etc.  There will also be improvements to the five existing steps down to the beach from the pedestrian area.

Work has already started which does mean that for the time being there are some restrictions and barriers in place for the safety of pedestrians.

  1. Hello, please could you advise when the beach works, particularly in the area by the Riu Palace Tenerife hotel (I think this is El Berio beach) will be completed? Thank you

    • The work on the beach has only just begun – so at the moment I don’t have a finalisation date. On Monday I will contact the relevant department to see if they can clarify the matter.

      • Is there already an answer to the question of Karen Yeates, since we are planning a stay at Riu too, in June 2017?
        Thank you

          • We are also planning on going here in january 2018 and also need to know if the construction work is finished. We stayed at Riu Arecas dec 2017 and it was a terrible noise at the beach pool. We will not go again until all is finished, impossible to relax. So, when is the finish date?

  2. We are looki to to take our honeymoon in Adeje Oct 17 and would like to know when the construction work will be finished around Duque beach area. Thanks

  3. Hello,
    I am hoping that you will have some news please concerning the beach work completion date. We are hoping it will be completed by May but any updates would be really useful.
    Thanking you in anticipation of a reply.

  4. This week I have seen the only remaining JCB create a large pile of sand by the chillout bar after excavating it from the waters edge. More recently approx 7 waggons a day have been bringing more sand and dumping it in the area previously excavated leading up to the waters edge. At the other end of the bay in front of the Riu a floating platform with a huge pump on has been pumping sediment from the seabed into a lagoon. This been set up over the last 10 days by 3 workers in their black speedos. Along the beach back wall a sand roadway is now protected from the sea by a continuous levee. The 6 metre pebble embankment which has been removed no longer provides protection to the promenade (which even then got swamped by pebbles thrown by waves) so the 1.5 metre sand levees will not suffice. Is it possible to create the 1400 square metre DRY sandy area?

  5. Dear Cliodna
    There appears to be a discharge on a daily basis into the middle of the new beach area from the pumping station between the Riu and the Altamira. Is this treated or untreated sewage? Very concerned Thanks

  6. Hi, me and my fiancé have our hearts set on booking this hotel for our honeymoon in August 2019, can you confirm if all ravine/beach works will be 100% completed by then?
