Palm Mar hit the map in Tenerife during the 80s when a small number of villas and houses were built and small village was born. Now nearly thirty years later Palm Mar has grown and has become very popular area which is home to many different European Nationalities. Although the size of Palm Mar has grown it has not lost the its village roots as has the other popular village resort of La Caleta. Palm Mar is located on the south western tip of Tenerife nestled in between the resorts of Los Cristianos and Costa del Silencio. Palm Mar is a popular choice with people buying property like apartments and villas in Tenerife due to its close proximity to the main resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas. Although the distance between Palm Mar and these resorts is relatively short, they are seperated by the impressive Montaña Guaza, which is the reason for the village atmosphere that Palm Mar enjoys. The area of Palm Mar boasts a fabulous beachfront and promenade and there are numerous bars and restaurants as well. A reliable bus service runs to Palm Mar which negates the need for transport and there also a number of supermarkets located within the area. Running along the coast to the south of Palm Mar is a nature reserve that is hugely popular with walkers, hikers and even dog walkers. The nature reserve is home to a host of native flora and forna and a view of Mount Teide, the volcano which dominates the island of Tenerife. There is a beautiful walk that is suitable for novices that runs from Palm Mar through the reserve to the Punta Rasca lighthouse and which finishes near a group of bars and restaurants where you can easily reward yourself after soaking up the wonderful scenery.
