Summer vacation with your rental car on La Palma
Summer is probably the most popular travel time for many tourists for a vacation on La Palma. We recommend you to visit the island with a rental car, so that you can stay far away from the tourist hot-spots. For example, with your own vehicle you can visit several beaches and resorts in one day. Thanks to the manageable size of the island, you will reach your destination quickly and not lose unnecessary time in your well-deserved summer holiday. In the summer months, be sure to visit the beach Los Cancajos, which consists of two very beautiful bays. Playa Nueva beach is also very popular in the summer and you can even watch surfers here or grab a board and go yourself.
Arrival at La Palma Airport
Get your rental car right after your arrival at La Palma Airport. In this way you will be flexible from the very first minute. From the airport you have only a very short distance to Los Cancajos. La Palma has a ferry port in the capital Santa Cruz de la Palma. From there daily ships run to Los Cristianos on south Tenerife with a journey time of approx. 2 hours. Once a week a ship goes to the Spanish mainland to Cadiz with a stopover on Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Tenerife.

In order to getting to the really beautiful places and beaches of the island, it is advisable to take a rental car. The road network on La Palma is in a good to very good condition and covers about 1200 kilometres. All main roads are asphalted and have been extended and renewed in the last 10 years. A curiosity is the road from Los Llanos to Santa Cruz, where you cross a 2,8 km long tunnel. If you travel from one side of the mountain to the other, it often happens that one side is completely covered in clouds and fog whereas on the other side there is bright sunshine.

Get some sun on La Palma
Those who only want to relax on the beach, get some sun and swim in the refreshing water of the Atlantic have more than enough opportunities to do so. The beaches of Tazacorte, Puerto Naos and Los Cancajos meet a high quality standard. Since La Palma is quite warm all year round, the evenings are relatively mild. Therefore, it is often a good idea to spend the end of the day with a glass of wine or a cool beer at the so-called kiosks.
