Santa Cruz de la Palma in detail

Getting Around

The best way to get around Santa Cruz is on foot. If you come in by car, try to find a parking spot by the waterfront, as the narrow streets are much better enjoyed while walking; parking in the old streets uphill behind the centre can also be particularly tricky. If you’re in a hurry you can catch one of the buses that run up and down the Avenida Marítima (€1.35) or hop in a taxi.

Bus 500 makes the journey between Santa Cruz and the airport (€1.50, 35 minutes, every 30 minutes) from 7.15am to 10.45pm, stopping in Los Cancajos on the way. At weekends, the service runs at least hourly. A taxi to the airport costs about €17.
