Hotels in La Palma
Arguably the most naturally rewarding and unspoilt of the Canary Islands, La Palma features an incredibly diverse range of landscapes, from primeval rain forest to arid desert and the scented pines of the Parque Nacional de la Caldera de Taburiente.
At the centre of this wonderful island is the vast volcanic Caldera de Taburiente and its national park. Here you can enjoy some of the most exciting walking terrain among the deep pine forests, sharp ravines and jagged mountain peaks. Towards the west, the valleys begin to fill with lush banana plantations and on the coast you can discover the longest and most impressive beaches on La Palma.
In thrilling contrast, the southern tip of the island includes stark, almost alien desert landscapes and the most recent evidence of volcanic activity. You can also enjoy Fuentcaliente or ‘Hot Fountain' where hot springs were once believed to possess magic healing powers, but were buried by volcanic activity in the 17th century.
Heritage and History
At Parque Ecológico de Belmaco you can visit the caves that were once inhabited by the Benahoare people. A rugged trail leads to a series of ancient cave dwellings where rock carvings were discovered in 1752. Intricate, swirling and shrouded in mystery, they date to around 150AD. Their true meaning is lost to us, but they are clear indelible evidence of the island's early inhabitants.
These people, The Guanches are believed to have shared common ancestry with the Berbers of Africa. In more recent history, La Palma served as a thriving trading post on the rapidly opening sea routes to the New World, with an immigrant population arriving steadily from Castile, Majorca, Flanders, Portugal and Catalonia.
All the Canary Islands are famed for their outstanding fish dishes and La Palma is no exception. The other very welcome common characteristics include fabulous meat recipes, natural hospitality and some quite jaw-dropping settings.
In Santa Cruz, try La Lonja. Set in a traditional Canary house with flower-strewn balconies, this distinctly upmarket restaurant has an enviable seafront aspect. For those who fancy going beyond the traditional Mediterranean-style meat and fish, La Vitamina is a mellow and friendly vegetarian establishment inspired by the flavours of Africa and Asia as well as Spain.
Before heading back to one of your La Palma hotels, savour the freshest seafood accompanied by the sound of crashing waves and sea breezes, give the laidback La Roca a try.
