Checking out Playa de Los Cancajos in La Palma

Destination: La Palma Island, The Canary Islands, 
Spain Travel Period: August 2020  

On our fifth day on La Palma Island, Dutchman and I headed down to the capital, but before reaching Santa Cruz de la Palma, we did a little detour and visited Playa de Los Cancajos.

La Palma: The Izcagua Viewing Point in Puntagorda and Dinner at Muralla

Destination: La Palma Island, The Canary Islands, 
Spain Travel Period: August 2020

In the beginning of the holiday, Dutchman and I were a bit disappointed in ourselves. We were used to the more intimate Greek Islands with organized pocket-size beach bays with parasols and beach beds and beach bars and a spruced up restaurant and shopping scene. La Palma's version of this is not as how we were used to. 

For the first few days we were missing the Greek Islands, but I was resolved to make this summer holiday a success, so I went to work searching for places to explore and enjoy. I read about a restaurant with a lovely view, so we decided to check it out first before reserving a table, as well as drive further up north where we came across this amazing viewing platform, Izcagua.


There were two viewing decks located in the recreation area of El Fayal. Both decks look to the valleys of Izcagua and the North Atlantic Ocean. The design of the viewing decks is modern with glass railings camouflaging itself into its surroundings.

It is so beautiful here!

3rd Day La Palma: Visiting La Bombilla, Puerto Naos, El Remo

Destination: La Palma Island, The Canary Islands,

We found ourselves exploring the coastal villages on the western side of the island. We have visited two small villages, La Bombilla and El Remo, and a big resort town, Puerto Naos.

This is Puerto Naos:
