Punta del Hidalgo
In the webcam you can enjoy a picturesque view of the coast of the town of Punta del Hidalgo and the Altagay swimming pool.
A little over 1,000 people live in the seaside village where the live broadcast is coming from. The village itself has been part of the municipality of San Cristobal de la Laguna since 1850.
Punta del Hidalgo, which you see in the online camera, has been flourishing in fishing and agriculture since ancient times. But after the 60s of the 20th century, the settlement became one of the main tourist regions of the north of Tenerife.
On the coast of Punta del Hidalgo, shown in the online live cam, there is a modern lighthouse from 1992. Also an interesting sight of the town is the red church de Nuestra Señora de la Consolación. An interesting fact: in Punta del Hidalgo, whose shore you see in the web camera, there is a monument to the folk music group Sabandeños.
Of the natural beauties in the village where the online camera is located, the La Punta rock, which gave part of its name to the city, deserves attention. It is located at the very beginning of the Anaga Natural Reserve and is part of the El Risco de Los Dos Hermanos Mountain system.
Punta del Hidalgo, where the webcam is broadcasting from, is located at a distance from the motorway and the main tourist centers of the island of Tenerife.
In the village, the coast of which is shown by the online camera, there are several fish restaurants and bars right on the waterfront.
North of Tenerife
The northern part of Tenerife shown online is colder. Precipitation in the form of rain often falls on its territory and high humidity prevails. But it is in the north of the Canary Island in the webcam that lush vegetation grows. Here you will find amazing and simply unique relic forests, Monteverde in Anaga, palm groves and orchards with exotic fruits.
In the northern regions of Tenerife, which this online camera shows well, there are fewer equipped beaches than in the south. But there are rocky and stunningly beautiful beaches with black sand. Strong winds usually blow on these beaches, which raise high waves. Therefore, it is on the northern coast that surfing is very popular.
Interestingly, despite the fact that in the north of Tenerife it is colder than in the south, the temperature of the water in the ocean is almost the same as in its southern part. Quite often, a cold wind blows, which does not allow you to make swimming comfortable.
The pools of Lago Martianez in Puerto de la Cruz are very popular with locals and tourists.
On the north side of Tenerife, where the live broadcasting town is located, is the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Authentic cities of La Laguna and La Orotava with narrow, small streets are very popular with tourists.
So, the northern part of Tenerife in the live camera is the most suitable place for a contemplative and relaxing holiday, excursions and sightseeing, as well as hiking routes in the mountains.
Tenerife in the online camera is one of the most beautiful places in the world. And both parts of this island deserve attention. The most reasonable solution is to combine a relaxing beach holiday with an exploration of the archipelago.
