The sea is a constant presence in La Palma. Its beaches and natural swimming pools are ideal for relaxing and enjoying a day in the sun. The volcanic lava which goes right down to the sea has created a low, rocky coastline with hidden beaches of black sand. A few kilometres inland from the coast you'll find high mountain ranges like the Roque de los Muchachos, famous in the field of astrophysics thanks to its modern observatory. Don't miss the chance to see the sky and the stars by taking part in the wide range of astronomical activities on offer. In addition to its volcanic sands and its coves nestling between the cliffs, the interior of the island is home to beautiful natural landscapes such as the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. La Palma has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO, and its observation points offer spectacular views over a sea of clouds stretching at your feet. If you'd like to take a cultural visit, the island has various interesting monuments and archaeological sites in addition to shrines, churches and museums, and historical towns like Santa Cruz de la Palma. Don't leave without buying some of the hand-crafted products like ceramics, bags, jams and the delicious cheeses.
