Section in La Palma
Do & See
La Palma's attractions start from sea-level and reach all the way up to the stars, with El Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory (housing one of the world's most powerful telescopes) marking the halfway point. Somewhere between the two lie hiking trails, volcanic landscapes, salt pans, natural parks and verdant forests that all guarantee to keep active visitors busy for days on end. La Palma's weather conditions are excellent for paragliding, and although beaches are far from being the island's primary appeal, there are a few attractive swimming locations dotting the coastline.
