Also known as La Isla Bonita or the beautiful island, La Palma is known for its stunning scenery amidst a vibrant atmosphere. Close to Morocco, Cape Verde and Portugal’s Azores and Madeira islands, these eclectic influences all make up La Palma’s flavourful culture that sets it apart from the rest of the Canaries.
Stop by the island’s capital, Santa Cruz, for a look at the old Spanish-style buildings and streets paved with cobblestones. Along the nearby Avenida Maritima, a popular shorelines with a promenade, it’s a local and tourist favourite due to the quaint Canarian houses that line the coast, with distinctive wooden balconies made from indigenous pine.
Puerto Naos on the island’s west coast is also a popular haunt for visitors to flock to. Featuring a wide range of restaurants from several different cuisines, in addition to a variety of bars and cafes, it’s an ideal spot to relax by the sea - with no clubs in sight, which adds to its quiet, calm setting.
