Flights to La Palma Airport
Book a flight to La Palma Airport and discover a lesser-known face to the Canaries where laid-back towns and mountainous scenery are the order of the day.
The best thing about a flight to La Palma Airport is that it feels like you’re heading into unchartered territory. You’ll struggle to find big resorts, neon signs and British pubs. In fact, book a flight to La Palma Airport and you’ll find resorts here tend to be of the low-rise and low-key variety. Take the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma. It’s a mix of boutiques and restaurants, with a good dose of colonial architecture. It’s all watched over by La Caldera de Taburiente, a huge volcanic crater that’s the nearest thing to a skyscraper in these parts. As for resorts, Brena Baja and Los Cancajos bring you a chilled collection of seafront hotels and restaurants.
