Of all the Canary Islands, La Palma is often one of the most overlooked. Indeed, this may seem understandable when considering the lack of beaches compared to the neighbouring Canary Islands. However, those who do visit La Palma are rewarded with a rugged landscape filled with beautiful mountainous panoramas and a number of scenic trails that can take you into the clouds. Unlike the other islands, La Palma - which is also known as La Isla Bonita (Pretty Island) – tourist developments and regeneration has been largely kept at bay.
A combination of dense vegetation and volcanic environments await your discovery and pave the way for a peaceful getaway. There are plenty of hiking trails available or you can opt to drive across the island, with roads that can even take you to the highest point of La Palma – El Roque de Los Muchachos (2,426M). Every turn holds something new to see, with volcanic craters, twisted rock formations and lush vegetation creating a varied but beautiful natural environment. It is so beautiful, in fact, that the whole island was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
