La Isla Bonita: exploring La Palma’s natural wonders
‘La Isla Bonita’ (the Pretty Island). The northwesternmost Canary Island is the land of forest, tropical fruit, volcanoes and desertscapes. It’s a treat for trekkers with more than 600 miles of waymarked footpaths. Enjoy the breathtaking view, volcanic cones and rocky barrancos. The bottom half of La Palma is dominated by the volcanic ridge Cumbre Vieja. The largest one is Volcán San Antonio. The crater is a superb stargazing viewpoint.
Explore the Volcán San Antonio Visitor Centre: Just beyond the gate is the start of the path downhill for the hike to the Volcán Teneguía and the lighthouse.
