Clear Atlantic waters, fascinating rock formations, stunning sea life, no wonder the Arona coast is so popular with scuba divers and snorkelers. The stretch from Palm Mar to Las Galletas is one of the most rewarding parts of the Tenerife coastline and its treasures are now part of a promotional campaign to attract more dive tourists.

Arona Ayuntamiento (council) has launched a campaign called Las Galletas, Capital del Buceo to spread the word to more diving enthusiasts. The natural cove of Palm Mar protects it from the rare extremes of weather and leisure and fishing boats tend to pass by further out to sea. Between Palm Mar and Las Galletas the protected nature reserve of Malpais de Rasca is made up of volcanic lava fields and is home to many species of wildlife.

With all these natural attractions it’s no surprise that Palm Mar is a big favourite as a place to make a new home, its position as a natural sun trap is also very handy. To browse some of the luxury properties available try the Grupo Los Menceyes website and think how nice it would be to live here.
