Cruising to Santa Cruz de La Palma, La Palma

One of the smaller islands in the Canaries, La Palma has a beautiful charm that appeals to all kinds of visitors. It has a varied and interesting landscape – with lush forestry and vegetation, areas of rocky, volcanic terrain, as well as desert. This mix of different environments earned La Palma the status of a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 2002.

It is also one of the less popular – and so less developed – of the Canary Islands, because it does not offer the idyllic sandy beaches that visitors to this part of the world tend to seek. This, however, is a bittersweet aspect of La Palma because even though there are no beaches to relax on, the lack of tourists has left the island with a rough and natural beauty that can be hard to find elsewhere.

With all this to see, many visitors simply enjoy exploring the island on foot - taking in all the views and wildlife. If hiking is not your thing however, there are plenty of other options to choose from when it comes to how to spend your time here.

The capital of the island, Santa Cruz de la Palma, has a rich history – having once been one of the most important ports during the period of the Spanish empire. It is adorned with impressive 16th century buildings in pretty colours, and in traditional architectural styles. As well as admiring the many mansions, the centre is home to several museums, and of course many cafes, restaurants, and bars.
