Tour around the spectacular nature of La Palma

Known as the "isla bonita" (beautiful island), La Palma is an attractive tourist destination for fans of open-air activities and getting in touch with nature. The municipality of Fuencaliente, in the south of the island, is one of the most interesting places to visit in La Palma with a route that will allow you to walk to and admire the important volcanoes of Teneguía and San Antonio, considered natural monuments and the La Palma Salt Flats, declared Sites of Scientific Interest and one of the most visited places on the island.

 

Volcanoes of San Antonio and Teneguía – first stop when you disembark

A 40-minute drive from Santa Cruz de La Palma takes us to the volcanoes of San Antonio and Teneguía in the municipality of Fuencaliente. There are camel rides and several interesting trails that start at the San Antonio Volcano Visitor Centre. One of them, which goes up the San Antonio Volcano, provides a view of the extensive vineyards in Fuencaliente with a dizzying path that crowns the peak of Teneguía, where you can feel the heat from the volcano. A relaxed walk with amazing scenery and spectacular views.

 

View of the salt flats in Fuencaliente on the way back to the boat

A short, 20-minute drive will take you from the volcanoes to the salt flats in Fuencaliente, a human landscape of great value, where the contrasts between the white of the salt, the black of the volcanic earth and the blue of the sea form an image of great beauty that make the salt flats a spectacular sight that are worth visiting in La Palma. Near the salt flats are the Fuencaliente lighthouse and the beach with the same name, with a beautiful seabed for diving and fishing, where you can have a quick swim before heading back to the boat.
