La Palma has many popular beaches, offering all kinds of leisure and entertainment services. It also has plenty of almost deserted beaches where you can enjoy wonderful solitude and tranquillity. While La Palma isn’t primarily a sun and sand resort, it has several outstanding beaches, with pristine sand and crystal-clear waters, along with untouched scenery and imposing cliffs. During your stay on the island you will see for yourself the mildness of its weather and the volcanic origin of the fine, black sand beaches. The largest ones are Puerto de Naos, Charco Verde, in Los Llanos de Aridane; Los Guirres or El Volcán, in Tazacorte; la Zamora, in Fuencaliente; Los Cancajos, in Breña Baja and Nogales, in Puntallana.
From the coastline up to 200m above sea level, temperatures do not vary significantly during the year, and the average temperature is 20ºC, which means very nice weather in winter and in summer. You will enjoy the peace the Isla Bonita offers, and bathing in the blue sea of the Atlantic Ocean will be one of the most pleasant moments of your holiday. Although, due to its natural beauty, the island is mostly promoted as an active leisure destination, it’s good to remember that the sun shines on La Palma almost the whole year around. This makes it into a distinctive holiday destination where sunbathing and relaxing on any of its beaches means discovering a miniature continent with it’s own extraordinary identity, full of contrasts.
