Known as "Isla Bonita", La Palma is, as the name suggests, possibly the prittiest island of the archipelago. You will find no golden beaches here, but beautiful scenery you won't find in other islands, like the National Park of Caldera de Taburiente with its volcanic crater, the water tunnels and natural pools at Marcos and Cordero, or exhuberant rainforests. Walking is without doubt the main draw of this island, with more than 600 miles of waymarked footpaths.
In 2002, UNESCO declared the whole island of La Palma a World Biosphere Reserve. The clear and protected night skies of La Palma are amongst the world’s best for looking at the stars. Since the island received the Starlight award, it has attracted astronomy and start gazing lovers from all corners of the world.
