The Adeje Abinque prize is awarded in Adeje by the Asociación San Juan to recognize women who stand out for their contribution to the life of the municipality. Over recent years it has been won by Walk for Life founder Brigitte Gypen, by young world bodyboard champion Alexandra Rinder, and by cheesemaker and co-owner of the Tijoco-based dairy Montesdeoca Ángeles Nieves García Rodríguez.
