La Palma Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Not to be confused with Palma de Mallorca, little La Palma is one of the two westernmost Canary islands. Not as busy as Gran Canaria or Tenerife, it is notable for its serene atmosphere, as well as plenty of great hiking opportunities. These are three of the island’s most notable attractions:

  • El Roque de los Muchachos. It might be only two-thirds the height of Teide, Spain’s highest mountain on neighboring Tenerife, but at 2,423 m (7,950 feet), the Boys’ Rock is nonetheless an impressive place to visit. Easily accessible by car (albeit only during the day as the road closes for the night), it offers both a stunning mountain drive and awesome views from the top.
  • Observatory. Not only the reason why the road to El Roque is closed at night, but La Palma’s space observatory is also one of the most interesting places to visit in all of the Canaries. Located near the peak of the mountain, it is notable both for its many large-scale telescopes and the significant research that is done three. A tour, which lasts about 90 minutes, needs to be booked in advance but is very much worth it. 
  • Caldera de Taburiente National Park. Encompassing not just El Roque, but a notable chunk of the island’s north, Caldera de Taburiente is a hiker’s paradise. Named after the large, canyon-like cauldron at its heart, it is known for its network of trails, Canary pine forests, volcanic formations, and a variety of bird species, many of which can only be found in the Canaries.

We drove around practically everywhere but not having a GPS can make it hard. The island of La Palma is really a wondrous continent in miniature with the most unique and extraordinary sites. Top tip: Be ready to negotiate narrow and ALWAYS curved roads so, no wonder how beautiful the landscape KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD AT ALL TIMES while driving. If you do hiking, these are my top 3: La Ruta de los Volcanes; La Caldera de Taburiente; Los Nacientes de Marcos y Cordero. All different; all extraordinary! Favorite places easily visited by car: - The ancient and impressive Volcan San Antonio en Fuencaliente, at the Southern tip of the island. It has an instructive Visitors Center; you can actually walk over the rim and see the pines growing inside the crater. - Drive up to El Roque de los Muchachos (2,370 METERS over sea level) with many very impressive lookouts along the way (dress warmly up there). Unique vegetation, wild flowers and geological formations. An impressive array of telescopes and astronomical equipment as part of the "Observatorio Astrofisico" complex at the top. - La Playa de Nogales (South of San Andres and Sauces; North of Punta Llana); even if you actually don't go down to the water, the views form the road lookouts are just amazing. - La Cascada de Los Tilos (near San Andres y Sauces in the island NE). There is a short a very beautiful hike from the visitors center. We stayed at "Casa los Tajinastes" in the neighborhood of Las Caletas, municipality of Fuencaliente. A "casa rural" with absolutely anything you may need (including internet) and views to die for! The island of La Palma is one of a kind, and you would simply love it.

Some of the roads are small and some are being rebuilt and diverted with many bends and gulleys by the side of the road between Fuencaliente and Los Llanos . Some drivers drive to fast so you need to take extra care
