 Excursion to see the nature and culture of La Palma

La Palma is an attractive tourist destination where you can connect with nature, relax on its charming beaches, go on excursions to volcanoes and ravines or take tours of cultural interest. Starting out from port in Santa Cruz de La Palma, in the east of the island, you can drive to some of the points of interest in La Palma: The Caldera de Taburiente National Park, where you can take a walk surrounded by the nature of La Cumbrecita Viewing Point and then visit the historic quarter in Los Llanos de Aridane, one of the island's most popular municipalities.

 

From the boat to La Caldera de Taburiente and La Cumbrecita Viewing Point

A half an hour by car from the port in Santa Cruz de La Palma and in the centre of the island is The Caldera de Taburiente National Park, a biosphere reserve and the greatest tourist attraction in La Palma: it is the perfect place to visit in La Palma if you have several hours free. Once in the park, you can take a short walking route around La Cumbrecita Viewing Point, a natural, open basin with beautiful views that will be enjoyed by nature lovers. You can only drive to La Cumbrecita if you book a space at the viewing point car park in advance or at the El Paso Visitor Centre.

Taking a quiet walk through the city, you can discover the tourist attractions of its historic quarter on your own before returning to the boat: Calle Fernández Taño and Calle Calvo Sotelo, with picturesque, traditional houses in Canarian style, Los Remedios Church, Plaza Chica, with a pretty fountain sculpted from stone, or Plaza de España, which has the oldest Indian laurel tree in the Canary Islands.
