La Palma is known as ‘La Isla Bonita’ for good reason; this beautiful isle is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, filled with deep gorges, laurel forests, dramatic cliffs and coastline. It is one of the most beautiful islands of the Canaries.
There is an undeniable thrill to exploring beautiful La Palma, land of dramatic volcanoes, tropical forests and beaches of fine black sand. The differences between the lush, tree-clad north and the starker, volcanic south of the island are striking, and the barrancos (ravines) which have been carved into the landscape make for such dramatic scenery that you never know what to expect as you round the next bend.
