La Palma is the most north-westerly and fifth largest of the Canary Islands off the northwest African coast.
It’s an island particularly well suited for walking holidays, offering hundreds of kilometres of footpaths through unspoilt areas of nature. You’ll be able to admire the mountains, volcanoes, beaches, rainforests and tiny villages along the way, too, which have all been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
What La Palma lacks in sandy beaches, it more than makes up for in breathtaking views of forested valleys and fascinating rock formations, earning it the nickname ‘the jewel of the Canary Islands’.
La Palma’s main port is in Santa Cruz de la Palma on the east coast, where you can sail to most of the Canary Islands and mainland Spain, so there’s plenty of options when it comes to travelling by ferry.
Spain is a beautiful and diverse country located in the south west of Europe. As a country well known for its beaches, the geographical and cultural diversity in Spain often comes across as a surprise to its visitors.
This exotic country really has it all, from lush meadows, green valleys and hills to snowy mountains and almost desert zones in the South. No wonder Spain ranks the third most visited European country.
In terms of getting to Spain by ferry, with the North, East and South sides of the country facing the Sea, there’s no shortage of options. From the UK, there are regular scheduled crossings available and though the crossings on offer are long, the ships are cruise like in standard which makes for an extremely pleasant trip. The same applies to the connection across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy.
From the North African coast, you can depart from Morocco, Melilla and Algeria. The services from Morocco in particular are very popular with many companies operating the connection across the strait of Gibraltar.
The Balearic and Canary Islands provide numerous connections to the mainland.
