La Palma Mini Guide

For such a small island there is an awful lot to see and do and public transport is limited outside of town. Hiring a car is a very cost-effective way to get around under your own steam. Organised coach tours and taxis can be expensive making car hire in La Palma an even more attractive proposition.
Many people go to La Palma for its scenery, attracting visitors from the UK, Germany, Italy and as far afield as the US and Canada. The volcanic landscape is like nothing on earth and many parts of it are inaccessible unless on foot. For this reason, there are many marked hiking trails and small boarding houses for those that want to explore the island in depth.
It is best to get in your rental car and drive out of your resort to the start of the trail, so you do not waste time on the less interesting parts of the island.
