On Thursday evening, Jim and I went to the opening of the new Bahia Beach Club in Palm Mar. The owners, of my favourite restaurant in the area, the Sea Lounge and Cafe Mencey have come together to provide what can only be described as a ‘Touch of Class’ to what has for so many years been a very poor excuse for a beach in this mainly residential village.
The setting they have picked for the bar is the best spot on the ‘beach’. The views across to Las Americas are breath taking particularly when the sun is setting.
Even in the opposite direction looking towards the fish farms if you are lucky, as we were last night you can see the dolphins. I first noticed a fin coming out of the water and then another and another. Were they getting an easy meal or were they looking at the crowds of people all wearing red and white enjoying the evening and the entertainment in this magical location.
Magical sounds a bit poncey but class and style don´t come cheap (well they did at the opening) neither do attentive and it has to be said attractive staff. Talking to people, it would seem that a beer is €4 and a sun bed up to €35. I just hope there are enough people wanting to escape the tattoos and chips brigade and willing to pay for the pleasure – after all you can´t have it all and it’s been a long time coming to Tenerife
Finally if anyone has their eye on the furniture that would look good on many a person’s patio don´t be tempted because as well as the guards and dogs – you are being watched from above!!!
