La Palma


La Palma is the least commercialised of all the Canary Islands with only two areas of development, one on the East coast Playa Canjanos and on the West Coast Puerto Naos and Tazacorte. The island is the most westerly of the Canary Island chain and quite different from its larger neighbours, being both smaller and far greener. The centre of the island is dominated by an extinct volcano which has created a microclimate full of unusual flora and forna. The area is designated a National Park and has been developed for leisure activities such as walking with many well sign posted walks. Maps are available from the Rangers Hut. 

Tazacorte, half way down the islands west coast, claims to be the sunniest town in Spain. Enjoy the long sandy (grey) beach backed by small tapas bars and fish restaurants. The splendid sunset is not to be missed, its nearly always spectacular.

Santa Cruz de La Palma, the islands capital, was once one ot the most important ports of the Spanish Empire, now very quaint full of cobbled streets running passed houses with the traditional wooden balconies. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday to the Canary Islands La Palma should be on your shortlist.
