Travel Agent's Viewone of Tenerife's oldest resorts popular with families and couples
This once quiet fishing village is one of Tenerife's oldest resorts popular with families and couples looking for a relaxing holiday, with many holidaymakers returning year after year. This resort is particularly popular with German tourists.
As Bajamar is located on the North East of the island, due to the rough waters of the Atlantic Ocean, it makes it virtually impossible to swim directly in the sea, which is why the 2 purpose built sea pools are so popular. The sandy beach offers an ideal place to sunbathe and safe place for children to play. The beach front has good facilities including showers, changing area, bars and restaurants.
There's more to the resort than just the beach and sea pools, Anagar Mountains are right on the door step and are ideal for an escape away from everyday stresses with beautiful walks and stunning scenery. In the resort is the tiny chapel of San Juan Bautista which dates back to 1628, excellent to explore.
Punta de Hidalgo
Punta de Hidalgo is located on the Northern coast of Tenerife in the area of Anaga Massif. The village is suitable for those wishing for a quiet relaxing holiday or those wanting to explore the area.
The area is dominated by vegetation including tabaibas, cacti, palm trees and banana plantations.
Los Rodeos Airport is approx 18 km away from the resort.

located on a really stunning coastline with some of the best views of Mount Teide to be found on the island
you'll find value and sun by the boatload here
Let's be honest, neither Bajamar nor Punta de Hidalgo are going to win any awards for their beauty; too much 1960s concrete development. But Mother Nature has provided adequate compensation.
To start with, they're located on a really stunning coastline with some of the best views of Mount Teide to be found on the island. They're also sheltered by the Anaga Mountains and I have very rarely visited when it hasn't been wall to wall sunshine.
A real treat for me is to swim in the natural rock pool at Bajamar; it looks and feels like you're in the Atlantic but without the battered effect. Drying off on the decking is bliss too. In Punta de Hidalgo I walk along the promenade with the dog walkers and joggers, past the lighthouse, to the Charco de la Arena restaurant which is a great place for a beer. Keep walking to the end of the path and you get stunning views over the Anagas. Occasionally, I walk all the way to Chinemada in the mountains; it's a bit of a killer climb but then I'm a masochist.
For lunch in Hidalgo, my hot tip is the Cofradéa at the little harbour. You can watch your fish being brought in and cleaned before it arrives, cooked to perfection, on your plate; to me, it's like a little piece of Cornwall on Tenerife. Seafood lovers in Bajamar should visit El Pris just along the coast; no frills and sometimes no tablecloth, just great fish. Take the coastal path from there to Mesa del Mar and walk through the tunnel, you'll emerge at a sheltered little cove with a black sand beach.
My advice? If you're looking for quiet, old fashioned resorts and don't care about their looks, you'll find value and sun by the boatload here and it's the perfect base for walking in the Anaga Mountains.
