Everyone has heard of the Canary Islands at some point in their lives, but it is rare that anyone is able to mention all of the islands in the chain. Oftentimes, the island of La Palma is often overlooked. It is a hidden rare gem that offers a beautiful and relaxing holiday retreat to tourists.
La Palma isn’t your average beach resort; especially with its rugged and rocky terrain. However, there are still some great hidden coves to discover as well as some great sandy beaches. One of the most popular beaches offers visitors black volcanic sand to relax in for hours. With minimal crowding and beautiful clear water, there is no reason to avoid the beaches at La Palma.
If you are visiting the island and looking to eat some exotic seafood, then you have come to the right location. La Palma doesn’t offer any fast food joints for the weary visitor. Instead of trying your run-of-the-mill restaurants, try some of the juicy olives and cured Serrano ham that the island offers.
La Palma has some tapas bars and disco-bars, but the island is mostly meant for relaxation. There is some night life, but compared to the other Canary Islands, it can seem pretty low key. This island offers some great resorts and relaxation for visitors seeking something a bit more private.
Some people may find it shocking that the island of La Palma offers next to no shopping malls or department stores for retail therapy. It is much of the charm of the island, but some tourists may see this as a setback. There are some small souvenir shops for tourists to make purchases from, but designer bags and clothes aren’t what you will find.
As you can see, La Palma offers a beautiful relaxing place to rediscover nature and get in touch with your inner self. With many of the modern amenities not available, this island can truly be a dream come true!
