Palm Mar is a quiet residential area situated between Los Cristianos and Las Galletas on the south coast of Tenerife. The area is still in development although that should not put any prospective buyers off the idea of living here. Properties range from apartments in residential and tourist complexes to detached villas on the seafront.
There are are number of international and Spanish bars and restaurants which cater for the multi-national residents and holiday makers. Palm Mar is not currently a well known holiday destination, but of course it is situated on the south coast and has a beach, so will become popular over the coming years.
There are a couple of supermarkets in the town but Palm Mar is situated about 10 minutes from Las Chafiras where there is a large national supermarket amongst other stores and superstores. Palm Mar is about 15 – 20 minutes drive from the airport, but is not on the flight path. The towns beach is narrow but long mainly pebble beach which looks over to the neighbouring town of Los Cristianos.
Buses run into the local towns from Palm Mar, but are currently infrequent, so a car or use of a taxi is probably going to be a requirement of anyone staying here long term. Los Cristianos is only a 10 minute drive over the top of Guaza mountain and Playa de Las Americas is another couple of minutes drive further on.
Palm Mar is a well looked after area and is well worth considering for investment properties and long term living is you fancy the quieter side of Tenerife.
