Map TenerifeNothing much has happened in Buenavista in recent times - until the flamboyant Spanish golf star Severiano Ballesteros came along.

Buenavista del Norte lies in the extreme northwest of Tenerife and was considered by the Guanches to be the 'end of the world'. Further on is Punta de Teno, the island's most westerly tip.

The five-times major championship winner designed a wonderful golf course there.

Buenavista is one of the few towns in the islands to have a foundation charter and indeed some of its civic records date back as far as 1516. It's a quiet place until Seve hit town, its earlier claims to fame centred around some fine 17th and 18th century houses.

In 1996 it was granted the title of 'Very Honourable Town', which came soon after a terrible fire destroyed the church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, taking with it nearly five centuries of cultural and spiritual heritage. After the Spanish conquest settlers arrived and sugar cane became a source of wealth and prosperity for the area.


Things to do in Buenavista del Norte

Beach in Buenavista del Norte
The beach at Buenavista - Playa de Las Arenas - is not a beach in the conventional sense, having little sand and consisting of small, naturally developed basins in the lava rock. A new promenade is the ideal vantage point from which to watch the sunset.

Day Trip to Masca
Even if the village of Masca is far away in the middle of the Teno mountains, the place belongs to the municipality Buenavista del Norte. However, maca is always worth a trip!
