10 magic moments in La Palma


There are places that will give you unique, magical moments...moments when you think "this is what I've always wanted to feel like". Places made just to suit you and your tastes. La Palma, known as the "isla bonita" (beautiful island), in the Canary Islands, is one of these places.

    Walking in La Palma

    Walk through dense forests with giant ferns. Make your way into a crater, known as a 'caldera' (cauldron), and gaze at spectacular deep canyons. Cross the island, with the clouds beneath you and a string of volcanoes. Surrender to the charm of the trails in La Palma.

    Outdoor astronomy

    Drive to the Llanos del Jable Viewpoint. Get out of the car and look up. We warn you: you cannot help being taken by surprise. Get your list of wishes ready for each shooting star you see. That is how the night is in La Palma, the island where they count stars instead of sheep to get to sleep.

    A sea...of clouds

    Have you ever had the clouds at your feet or seen clouds cascading down a slope covered in Canary Island pines? It's quite a sight. Give your eyes a treat and, of course, get your camera ready to take a lot of photos.

    A natural spa

    Heat from the black sand flows through the towel, relaxing your muscles. The cool water of the Atlantic Ocean wetting your feet. The soft scent of Canary Island pines floods your senses as you take a nap accompanied by the murmur of rooks. The relaxing view of the whole southern flank of the island. Breakfast in the highest peaks…The natural spa that is La Palma.

    Let's go to the beach

    Arrive at the beach at any time you like, without having to bother about finding space. Enjoy the sensation of "owning" a whole cove. Wait for just the right wave to come along to play with. Let yourself go on the sand and build a pretty black castle. These are La Palma's beaches.

  6. ´Almendrados´ (almond biscuits) and Malvasía wine. La Palma
