The charming little town of Breña Baja sits on a hillside just outside Santa Cruz, the bustling capital of La Palma. This appealing resort offers the best of all worlds: you’ll have all the peace and tranquillity of a country town, with the vibrant big-city attractions of Santa Cruz and the striking volcanic sand beaches of Los Cancajos right on the doorstep. The rural surroundings are ideal for hiking and mountain-biking, plus you can enjoy a host of water sports nearby, including snorkelling and scuba diving. Santa Cruz, 3 kilometres away, is a beautiful port city, packed with historic buildings, as well as great shops, bars and restaurants. Though you can always simply choose to lounge by the pool of an all inclusive hotel.

Your guide to Brena Baja holidays
The whole island of La Palma is a UNESCO biosphere reserve, and Breña Baja enjoys a gorgeous, rural setting. You’ll be able to soak up some wonderful views, go hiking, and tuck into some tasty local cuisine in one of the local restaurants, or head down to the coast to spend the day at one of the fantastic black-sand beaches at Los Concajos. If you’re in search of bright lights, you can head in to Santa Cruz, the island capital, which is just 3 kilometres away. As well as its beautifully preserved historic heart, the city offers bags of great shopping, dining and nightlife.
The main beaches in the Breña Baja region are found in Los Cancajos, a small and appealing seaside resort. It has several striking black sand beaches, including some beautiful little coves. The main beach is a lovely curve of dark sand, hugged by rocky outcrops in a sheltered bay. It’s calm and tranquil, making it great for families, and also offers sunbeds and parasols for rent, as well as a number of handy restaurants and cafés. Snorkelling and scuba diving are popular activities here, thanks to the transparent waters. A couple of kilometres north, near the marina in Santa Cruz, Bajamar Beach is another popular and well equipped beach.
