What to expect

There's a beach in Santa Cruz – but there's so much to see in the capital of La Palma that you might not have time to chill on its volcanic sands. For this excursion, we'll pick you up at your hotel and drop you off in the town for a day to explore its history-steeped cobbled alleys at your own pace.

From the shops of Calle O'Daly – the Salazar Palace is a must-see – to the beautiful wooden balconies of Avenida Maritima, La Palma is a treasure trove of colonial architecture. Climb up gently sloping streets to the heart of the old town, where you'll find whitewashed churches with basalt belfries. In the north of the town, you'll find Santa Catalina Castle and the island museum.

Near the port, you'll find old fishermen's cottages and a replica of Christopher Columbus's flagship during his first voyage to the Americas. There are also plenty of cafés and shops selling local specialities such as honey rum and embroidery. You'll then be picked up and dropped back to your hotel.
