DESTINATIONS spain lapalma Do & See Fuencaliente


Fuencaliente in the island's south is a good base for travellers looking to explore nearby natural attractions. Visit the village of Los Canarios itself, and take trips to nearby volcanoes (de San Antonio and Teneguia) or salt pools to experience the awe-inspiring beauty of this region.

Do & See

La Palma attracts adventurous types – leisurely sunbathing is often overlooked in favour of hiking the island's volcanic landscapes, exploring verdant laurel greenery and discovering the magic of Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. 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.
