Flying to La Palma (airport code SPC) is not complicated. If you are coming from outside the Canaries, there are direct flights from Madrid to La Palma all year round, and in about two and a half hours you’ll find yourself on the Pretty Island (Isla Bonita). In the summer period, moreover, the island is directly connected with other cities like Bilbao, Seville, or Barcelona. If you can’t find a direct flight from your place of origin, there’s always the option of travelling via Gran Canaria (LPA), about 45 minutes, or Tenerife (North Airport, also known as Los Rodeos), about 30 minutes. There are good connections to both islands from La Palma.
If, on the other hand, you are travelling from a German, Belgian, British or Dutch place of origin, there are direct flights to La Palma from cities such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Brussels, London or Amsterdam (in approximately 4-5 hours). And if this option is not feasible, remember there are good connections with other Spanish cities, which you could fly to first, and then continue to La Palma. Whatever your route, it only takes a few hours to get here!

Arriving by sea is another option, as well as being a spectacular experience. For example, you could go on an ocean cruise calling at La Palma, to get an idea of what the island has to offer. If, on the other hand, you want to spend longer here (which, of course, is ideal), bear in mind that there are good daily ferry connections from Tenerife, either from the harbour of Los Cristianos (in the south of the island). Depending on the ferry, the journey takes between 2 hours and a half, and 4 hours. From the harbour of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria there is also a connection, but also with a stop in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Lastly, La Gomera and El Hierro are also connected to La Palma by sea.
Just imagine yourself! Sailing the high seas, feeling the Atlantic spray in your face, seeing the Isla Bonita getting closer and closer, marvelling at its rugged cliffs…
