Places in The Centre of La Palma
One of La Palma’s two tourism centres (Los Cancajos, on the east coast, is the other), Puerto Naos is a town that exists almost solely for the tourists who come to relax on its beautiful black beach, rest under its palm trees, soak up the views of its glittering ocean and stroll along its beachfront promenade.
Parque Nacional de la Caldera de Taburiente
Declared a national park in 1954, this beautiful park is the heart of La Palma, both geographically and symbolically. Extending across 46.9 sq km, it encompasses thick Canary pine forests, a wealth of freshwater springs and streams, waterfalls, impressive rock formations and many kilometres of hiking trails.
