    What an absolute amazing road trip. If your visiting La Palma this has to be no 1 place to visit. Check the weather out before you go via the La Palma web cams. We went up today and the LP 4 route from Sant Cruz is breathtaking. The route is typical La Palma following the contours of the mountain. The route starts via lush green vegetation then it opens out to pine forest then high mountain ranges. Take your time traveling not to avoid the fantastic view points. You then turn off the LP4 up to the top. Limited parking for around 18 cars but parking can be had near by. Then you walk out to see the unbelievable breath taking views - stunning. Walk forward step by step to see one off the best views in the world (honestly I have travelled across the globe). Admire nature at its best. There is a clue in why the biggest observatories are here!!!! This place is awe inspiring and inspirational. Please take time out here and replenish your soul.

    We enjoyed breathtaking views, wonderful walks, volcanic pine forest and amazing landscapes. A 4 kms. tour can be accomplished also by kids. Trainers strongly recommended.

    When strolling along the promenade from the port the views out to sea are spectacular ... but remember to look the other side at the beautiful old buildings, representing the architectural heritage of the Island.

    Very quaint and picturesque.

    Memorable and friendly colonial era street, originally drafted by the bright Cremonan engineer Leonardo Torriani back in the 16th century. This southern half of Santa Cruz's High Street is named after one of the town's most well remembered local improvers, Sr.D. O'Daly, who made a mark on making the town grand and democratic in the 18th century. The street is exclusively pedestrian, and starts on the now-restored "Nitrato de Chile" ceramic poster, continuing nortwards. Numerous well-supplying shops are lined up and offer a historic and also a romantic walk. Awesome architecture is abundant, that would obviously be superb to see when guided by a local expert.

    This is well worth a visit. A small and informative information centre. Lovely walks up to the waterfall and through the surrounding area.

    We did the root with mountain bikes, the views are fantastic and the landscape is amazing, if the weather is good you can even see Tenerife!

    Really good day at Tazacorte beach. Showers and nice restaurants with easy access. The few shops are quite expensive if you forget your beach day equipment but you'll find necessities. The restaurants serve menu of the day (menu del dia) which is good at lunchtime and includes a drink also.

    This was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life so far. The road to the top is long and quite challenging sometimes, but it's totally worth it! The view is absolutely amazing. I would recommend to go there just before the sunset.

    Only a 12 minute drive up from Playa Tazacorte, according to Google Maps.

    Stopped in Santa Cruz La Palma as part of a day trip to La Palma. The city centre has lots of beautiful buildings, some of which have balconies. The Maritime Museum is in a ship and there are some interesting statues dotted about the place.

    there is a signed roundwalk with information about the whole procedure to make the salt, and even if the production only starts in spring, you can also in winter see the basins filled with water, changing colors by the percentage of salt (concentration). it took us about an hour to wonder around and we really enjoyed, also the views around beyond the salt fields.

    Although Temporarily Closed, this attraction is still worth a visit.
    To see a massive sailing ship sitting on the side of the road is amazing in itself.
    If the inside is anything as good as the outside, then it's definitely another attraction well worth another visit.

    our second visit here, the first time we walked to it having had the walk as a little strenuous and to us it was much more than that so this time we took a taxi there and walked back we could have taken the local bus no 33 but as it was Sunday we werent too sure how they were running, but the church is beautiful, stunning chandeliers, extremely ornate worth a visit

    Visited here today. Hired a car a drive up. You have to book a parking slot before hand. Fantastic views and nice walks. You will need rigid walking boots / shoes. Great views

    This is a small kind of park in an uninspring surrounding. The plants, the mosaic in the floor, the wall of plants, the sculptures and mosaic seats make a nice combination. Yo can see everything in a few minutes, but it also a nice place to relax.
