Last week a new destination was added to our client portfolio, the island La Palma. Also called La Isla Bonita. Different climates and landscapes all in one island. Last week I experienced it all myself. Three places on La Palma that took my breath away:
Roque de Los Muchachos
To reach Roque de Los Muchachos you have to take a winding road up. You can feel a little bit dizzy when you reach the top but it is all worth it! At the top of the Island, at over 2400m above sea level, the view is spectaculair. When we were there the weather was cloudy but this made the view even more spectaculair. Above the clouds it feels like you are on top of the world. Roque de Los Muchachos is also a astrophysics observatory, it is one of the most complete telescope complexes of the world. Due to the dark and clear skies of La Palma, it is the perfect spot to gaze at the stars.
Tazacorte and Puerto Naos
Tazacorte and Puerto Naos are two small villages along the coast of La Palma. Both villages have a little boulevard with some restaurants and a lovely, black sand, beach. No mass tourism here. When driving along the west coast of La Palma you are surrounded by banana plantations and stunning views! If you are planning to visit Puerto Naos you should definitely try some Calamaris fritos. Fried squid fresh from the ocean.
Fuencaliente is the most southern municipality of La Palma and is surrounded by vulcanic landscapes. On the far end you can find a lighthouse, which is also the center of the marine reserve and Salinas de Fuencaliente, the salt extraction. The combination of the lighthouse, Salinas and the ocean make it an unforgettable view.
