La Palma holidays 2021

Lose yourself in the Canary Islands’ calmest corner on holidays in La Palma, where sky-high volcanoes and forest-smothered national parks offer an escape like no other.

La Palma is a volcanic island defined by its natural beauty. It may serve up the same year-round sunshine as the other Canary Islands, but its quiet character is woven into a lava-carved landscape that entices you away from the resorts and into nature. Declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 2002, fill your holidays in La Palma with majestic hiking trails, historic towns and black sand beaches fringed by turquoise sea.

Watersports in La Palma

While many of La Palma’s delights lie inland, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to spend all holiday long beside the coastal waters. Dive into spectacular underwater canyons forged by volcanic eruptions, spot dolphins as you parasail over the ocean and kayak to hidden beauty spots such as Cueva Bonita – a cave once used to capture pirates!

Top attractions

From verdant gorges to starlit skies, get ready to explore on holidays in La Palma.

  • Hike into the ancient heather forest of Parque Cultural La Zarza. Hidden caves, embellished with swirling rock carvings, are believed to have been made by the original inhabitants of this green island.
  • The night skies above La Palma are some of the clearest in Europe. Marvel at Jupiter’s moons from the observatory atop the highest peak, Roque de Los Muchachos.
  • On the southern tip of the island, Fuencaliente’s pure white salt pans are a sight to behold. Framed against vivid blue ocean and moody volcanic hills, it’s an area of unique contrasts.
  • La Palma’s capital city, Santa Cruz, packs a cultural punch. Charming streets with Renaissance churches, flower-festooned balconies and a 17th century castle showcase Canarian architecture at its finest.
  • Famed for handmade crafts, particularly embroidery, the south east town of Mazo is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir. Treat yourself to intricate clothes, tablecloths and tapestries to last a lifetime.
Nature in La Palma

Nature in La Palma

Pull on your walking boots and keep your camera handy, because cheap holidays in La Palma deliver natural beauty on an epic scale.

  • Taburiente National Park is the scenic jewel in La Palma’s crown. Myriad walking trails take you up vast volcanic peaks, through lustrous valleys and past waterfalls, glittering in the sun.
  • More tropical in feel, Los Tilos is one of the last remaining laurel forests in the world. Dripping in dew-dotted ferns and natural springs, it remains untouched by tourism.
  • Beautiful in its barrenness, the Volcano Route might be La Palma’s most popular hike. The demanding trek ascends 1,200 metres to a yawning crater and panoramic views to neighbouring La Gomera.
  • Easier paths wind below the crags of Cumbre Vieja Natural Park. Prehistoric lava formations and indigenous wildlife combine for simple, scenic strolls that don’t require a compass!
  • Despite its subtropical climate, La Palma’s ocean is pure wild Atlantic. Hop on a whale watching trip to spot pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins and maybe a few sea turtles too.
