The botany of the island of La Palma

The north of the island by bus

 

In addition to LA BONITA, La Palma is also known for its lush natural heritage as the Green Island. With our excursion through the northeast, you will discover the beauty of its landscapes, with a changing vegetation due to the diverse microclimates of the place, imposing gorges and picturesque hamlets full of tradition.

We will visit the area of the Mirador de La Montaña or the Salto del Enamorado to enjoy an incomparable panoramic view of the mountains covered by a green coat with a steep coastline full of cliffs and an original sculpture reminiscent of the local legend of the Salto del Enamorado.

After enjoying the view of the top of the mountain, we will stop at the viewpoint next to the church of San Bartolo, where we can have a coffee before continuing.

In San Andrés y Sauces, the green heart of La Palma awaits us: the Tilos Nature Reserve, a place with which you will undoubtedly fall in love from the first minute. It is a true ecological jewel, protected by Unesco and the first biosphere reserve on the island. It is one of the most important forests of the Canary Islands, where the beauty of the laurel forest is represented in all its splendor with an ecosystem from the Tertiary. In the Interpretation Center, we will learn even more about the values of the extraordinary environment in which we find ourselves.

Our route leads “from the mountain to the sea” and passes through the picturesque village of San Andrés. Surrounded by banana plantations and with its historic church square, it is one of the most beautiful places on the island. A walk to Puerto Espíndola allows us to enjoy the location, see the natural sea pools of Charco Azul and get to know the Ron Aldea distillery, where rum is made in a traditional way and with care from sugar cane.

Finally, we will walk through the streets of the historic center of Santa Cruz de La Palma and get to know the most emblematic places of the palm capital.

 

La Palma in all its colors is to fall in love with.
