From the LP-114 from Santo Domingo to Tijarafe you sometimes have beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean. The forests with the Canarian pine trees create a beautiful setting.

One of the reasons you should visit La Palma that the island is one of the Canarian Islands that distinguishes itself from the other islands like Tenerife and Gran Canaria because there is no mass tourism. So are you looking for a nice and relaxing sunny holiday with not too many people? Then La Palma is the perfect destination for you! Relax on one of the quiet beaches with black sand or walk around and enjoy the fantastic nature!

Roque de Los Muchachos is a viewpoint that you certainly can’t skip during your visit La Palma. Go prepared because Roque de Los Muchachos is situated on a height of 2.426 meters. Bringing a good pair of shoes is not superfluous. Driving by car you can go a long way and we recommend to stop at a nice restaurant for a drink along the way. The view at the top is really breathtaking. Do we need to say more?

If you really want to enjoy a calm holiday it’s best to stay in the North of the island, where it is much less crowded. If you would like to enjoy the beach and the Canarian sun, we suggest staying more in the South of the island.

The island offers a lot of nature, including the Atlantic Ocean where dolphins are the regular guests, as well as whales in the winter. Tazacorte is a very nice and colorful village with some good seafood restaurants, as well as a big beach where you can relax. From the harbor of Tazacorte we offer some nice boat tours to see dolphins and in winter you can encounter whales as well! What do you think of sailing on a Bussard to get really close to the dolphins and enjoy the impressive cliffs of La Palma in a comfortable atmosphere?
