Buenavista del Norte Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View a charming town which is surrounded by stunning countryside.

Located on the north west of the island, Buenavista del Norte is a charming town which is surrounded by stunning countryside. The golf course here overlooks the sea making the area a popular choice for golfers and is an ideal base for those who want to explore the area.

Within the town there is a selection of restaurants, bars and shops as well as a traditional square with a band stand. There is a small rocky beach, Playa de los Barqueros, in the area, but for larger sandy beaches a day trip down to the south of the island will offer a great choice including the blue flag beach of Playa de la Arena.

Tenerife North airport is approx 65 km from the town.


Insider's View

Tenerife Insider Buenavista is one of the island's oldest settlements where agriculture remains at its heart.

Golf is what Buenavista does best with a course designed by Seve Ballesteros and views from the greens to die for.

Tenerife's most westerly point, Buenavista is one of the island's oldest settlements where agriculture remains at its heart. Around the Plaza you'll find handmade crafts and tasty goat's cheeses by the wicker basketful and if you're there in January you might also find the beasts that yielded them as several hundred head of livestock are herded through the streets for San Abad. I go every year to see what I can spot in between the dogs, donkeys, goats, ox, cattle and horses. Tally so far; three snakes, several parrots and a giant iguana. Secretly, going to San Abad is just a front for a visit to the town's bakery, El Aderno; this is Tenerife's cake and chocolate Nirvana.

Golf is what Buenavista does best with a course designed by Seve Ballesteros and views from the greens to die for. For normal people, sorry, non-golfers, the coastal path is an excellent alternative and don't miss the amazing infinity rock pool below the greens. It's well worth the entrance fee to float in that idyllic setting.

Another favourite haunt for me is the little beach of Playa de las Arenas where I seek out a small patch of sand amongst the rocks and settle down to some serious sunbathing followed by lunch at the El Burgado at the far end of the beach.

The down side of Buenavista is that youre at the furthest point from anywhere on the island. The up side is that you're an amazing drive away from Masca and well placed to explore both the north and the west.

And the must-sees? Buenavista is poised on the cusp of two micro climates. If it's a cloudy day, drive through the tunnel towards Punta Teno and the chances are you'll emerge into cloudless skies. Even if you don't, the lighthouse, rock pools and little coves are worth exploring and follow the decking path for a great swimming platform.
