La Palma, Spain

Fly to ‘La Isla Bonita’, as the charming La Palma is known as. Without doubt it is one of the greenest and prettiest of the Spanish islands!

La Palma has incredible beauty. Its beaches lie against a backdrop of mountains, woods and volcanic scenery. There is a natural footpath running over the whole island so that you enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna to the full. Take a walk through bay or Canary pine woods, with the loveliest indigenous plants such as the famous dragon blood tree, peeping through. Did you know that La Palma is known for its clean and clear air? With a little luck you will be able to enjoy a field of stars on sultry summer evenings!
