Discover La Palma
Coast and sea
The relationship between the Canarians and the sea began more than 2,000 years ago, when the first settlers of the archipelago arrived in the Canary Islands.
La Palma has a wide network of viewpoints from which you can admire the sea and, on occasions, enjoy the island’s fishing tradition.
Along its 118 kilometres of coastline, La Palma surprises with its unspoilt landscapes, impressive cliffs, charming fishing ports, beautiful black sand beaches and the new “fajanas” (lava strips) recently created by the volcanic eruption.
The Marine Reserve of La Palma is a spectacular example of the natural ecosystems of the Canarian seacoast. It shelters a multitude of species of high biological interest, and discovering its seabed is a unique experience.
