Ask someone on the street to name all the Canary Islands and most people can normally drum up the big four - Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. But the smaller ones don’t tend to spring to mind quite so easily. And little La Palma certainly falls into this camp.
A lot of people haven’t even heard of it. Others think it’s a city, confusing it with Las Palmas in Gran Canaria or Palma de Mallorca. One thing’s for sure, it’s off most people’s radar. But this is where the appeal lies.
La Palma remains totally unspoilt. It’s quiet. It’s peaceful. And it’s far from the madding crowd. You won’t find any of the telltale marks of mass tourism here - there are no concrete jungles or neon - lit strips to speak of. Instead, what you get is a more authentic picture of the Canaries. One of quaint, whitewashed houses, colonial buildings and tasteful low-rise resorts.
And then there’s La Palma’s trump card - the scenery. Think mountains cloaked in pines and dramatic, almost theatrical-looking ravines. No wonder the locals call it La Isla Bonita - the Beautiful Island. But La Palma’s more than just a pretty face. It’s a record breaker, too. It’s home to the largest volcanic crater in the world, La Caldera de Taburiente.
Like the rest of the Canaries, La Palma has a volcanic past and is sprinkled with volcanoes and bizarre geological oddities. The famous ‘volcano trail’, down in the south of the island, will get keen walkers scrambling for their hiking boots while La Palma’s volcanic black sandy beaches will appeal to the sun-worshipper in you.
It’s lush. It’s green. And it’s absolutely gorgeous. Mother Nature had a field day with La Palma.
