If a tropical island vacation has been one of your long-held fantasies, you can now make it a reality by staying at one of our vacation rentals in beautiful Palm-Mar on the gorgeous island of Tenerife, the largest and most inhabited of the Canary Islands, just off the southwestern tip of Morroco.
Soak up the sun and bask in the beauty of this quiet and modern resort area. Enjoy easy access to all the sightseeing, dining, and natural wonders you're able to fit in during your stay. Experience a true micro-climate in this autonomous, urban community, thanks to its location between a natural reserve and the mountains. This exclusive neighborhood is experiencing significant growth and change, so come be part of the evolution of this burgeoning, subtropical paradise that possesses a sense of serenity and a peaceful harbor.
Just nine miles from the Tenerife South Airport, Palm-Mar is located on the south coast of Tenerife and boasts both rocky and sandy beaches. A short driving distance from nearby Las Galletas (four miles) and the more tourist-driven cities of Playa de las Amércias (seven miles) and Los Cristianos (five-and-a-half miles), Palm-Mar is a perfect location to experience unrivaled sea breezes and natural beauty, allowing you to create the tropical paradise getaway you've dreamed about.
Laze in the sun and soak up some rays at beautiful Bahia Beach Club, Pal-Mar's exclusive beach club, bar, and restaurant. Spread out on the warm white sand at this stunning oasis, and catch up on your reading or take a nap. Build a sandcastle, romp in the waves, or get involved in an entertaining and rejuvenating game of beach volley. When the hunger pangs hit, grab a quick bite or settle in for a leisurely meal and drinks at the Bahia Beach restaurant and listen to live music. Post dinner, lounge on a swinging hammock or Balinese bed. Massages are even available at this luxurious Palm-Mar venue!
When your action-packed day is done, pause to take in the stunning natural beauty of your surroundings before you head back to your welcoming vacation rental for some rest and relaxation and to plan your next day's activities.
Consider a visit to Palm-Mar's natural reserve, a large area loaded with native plants and animals. Walk through the reserve, or go on horseback for a slow-paced immersion into this beloved natural haven, untouched by development and commerce. Palm-Mar is also home to numerous hiking trails of all lengths and levels of difficulty, as well as Malpais de la Rasca, an outstanding park for evening strolls or fishing.
If golfing is on your itinerary, you're only nine miles from the Amarilla Golf Club, and for those who would rather swim with the fish than catch them, contact Dive Club Tenerife for a deep sea diving excursion.
In addition to the delicious menu at Bahia Beach Club, Palm-Mar is also home to an eclectic group of eating establishments. Sea Lounge has ample outdoor seating, an extensive and mouth-watering menu, and tasty cocktails and other cold beverages to quench your thirst.
Other notable restaurants worth a visit are Tapati, Spice & Silk Indian Cuisine, and Tasca Punta del Rasca. For seaside drinks as you witness a gorgeous Canarian sunset, check out Ciringuito.
