How can I fly There?
Most flights into La Palma are from Germany or neighbouring Spain. Of course you can also island hop between the Canary Islands. From the UK there are only two charter services from Manchester or London Gatwick or you can travel through one of the main airport hubs at Amsterdam or Brussels.

Can I get to the City or my Resort Easily?
The easiest way is by car, you can drive from the airport to Santa Cruz de la Palma taking the LP138 and the LP123 highways. From there you can take the LP2 to Los Llanos. You would pick up your hire car from the offices at P floor in the airport terminal. If you don’t want to drive, then taxis are always available at the arrivals area. There is a bus service from the airport to Santa Cruz de la Palma and Los Llanos.

What Facilities Does the Airport Have?
If you need to change currency or use the ATM go to Caja Canarias bank on P floor. Nearby, you will find the airport information desk should you have any questions about the airport or the local area. A pharmacy is available for any last minute emergencies and is also situated on P floor.

What If I am Hungry?
If you are really hungry, head for Henry J Bean’s Bar and Grill and have an American style steak. For something more traditional have a meal at La Pausa. If it is just a light snack you are looking for, go to Ars for a sandwich or a have a coffee and pastry at Caffriccio.

I Forgot to buy a Gift, are There any Shops?
The best place to buy a gift is Jeronimo – they have lots of local and ethnic unusual items for you to choose from and most items are natural or recycled. For locally produced food and a wide selection of duty free goods, take a good look around Canariensis. Finally visit Isla Bonita for last minute souvenirs and a book to read on your travels.

Latest Update from La Palma Airport:

07/02/17 – In 2016 there was an increase in passenger numbers by 14.9% and for the first time since 2010 passengers exceeded the 1 million mark. La Palma has had the biggest growth in tourism of all the Canary Islands. 

08/05/12 - Building of the new terminal at La Palma Airport is nearly complete and with the airport desperate for space, the building will open whilst final work is still being completed.Only two thirds of the gates will be open initially and the airbridges will not be finalised so when it does open in early summer, passengers will still have to walk to the planes. Everything is due to be finished by August and then La Palma will have a fabulous 21st century ready airport.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve hired a car for the duration of your holiday we’d recommend you visit the canals of Los Tilos. Similar to the ‘levadas’ of Madeira, they run for miles along roads, across the countryside and often through tunnels, whilst irrigating the crops on the way.

Many people choose to walk the length of them through the beautiful terrain. Many of the crops they irrigate are vines which produce the little known but still delicious La Palma wine. Another speciality is the Malvasia fortified wine of the island which is referred to by Shakespeare.
