La Palma in detail

Getting Around


Transportes Insular La Palma buses keep Santa Cruz well connected with the rest of the island. The bus stops are near Plaza Constitución and along Avenida Marítima. Routes include bus 300 to Los Llanos de Aridane (€2.40, 45 minutes) every half-hour or so.

The island-wide bus ticket system has been revamped with just three tariffs depending on distance: €1.50 (0–10km), €2.40 (10–20km) and €2.60 (over 20km).


Having your own car is the best way to explore the island. La Palma has plenty of car-rental agencies located throughout.
