The borough of Adeje has experienced huge population growth in recent years, and one sign is the increase in the number of pharmacies licenced by the Canarian Health Service operating in the borough, with 21 throughout Adeje currently serving the public.
According to the Adeje councillor for health protection, Amada Trujilllo Bencomo “opening the new pharmacies was most definitely a necessity given the growth in the local population, not to mention the need to provide a service for the huge numbers who visit Adeje and may also need a pharmacy during their stay”.
The pharmacies are located throughout Adeje, from Tijoco Bajo, the centre Adeje, Las Torres, San Eugenio, Fañabé, Costa Adeje, Fañabé, the Plaza del Duque, Fañabe and Oasis comercial centres, San Eugenio Los Olivos, Playa de Las Américas, Armeñime, Miraverde and Callao Salvaje.
As a whole on the island of Tenerife there are over 60 pharmacies, and Adeje and Arona have the greatest proportion of those given the density of the local population. With the awarding of these 8 new licences the current round of allocations has now closed.
