Nothing says peace like this tiny holiday spot. Set near La Palma’s south-west coast among its famous banana plantations, Todoque is a little cluster of buildings sprinkled around the road that links Puerto Naos with Los Llanos.
The village itself doesn’t amount to much. Take a closer look and you’ll find little more than a Canarian-style church and a few shops, bars and restaurants overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. It’s fair to say, then, life around here tends to favour the sleepy end of the scale, making the village an ideal base for unwinding.
Set your sights a little further, however, and you’ll find plenty of La Palma’s attractions in easy reach. Just south of the village is the coastal favourite of Puerto Naos – a seafront town known for its consistently warm weather and soft black-sand beach. And a short distance north is Los Llanos. It’s the island’s second largest town and home to a beautiful colonial church.
Taking pole position on La Palma’s to do list, though, is the scenery. All soaring volcanoes and lush tropical rainforest, it’s certainly got a dramatic quality. Take advantage of it all and drive just 10-minutes to La Caldera de Taburiente National Park where you can admire the island’s highest peak. Or, for a taste of the tropical side, the botanical gardens of Pueblo Parque are close by, too. And for a snapshot of it all, the platform at Mirador del Time is ideal. The island views from here are nothing short of breathtaking.
