Car Hire La Palma

La Palma Airport Guide

La Palma is a much quieter and more peaceful island than the other Canaries and is much less developed. There’s plenty to do on the island but it’s not one known for beach life. Instead, you need to don walking boots or hire a car and explore the dramatic landscape. You can take a hire car up to the top of the island’s highest point for fabulous views but beware that in winter the roads are often closed by snow! The lush countryside affords great hiking terrain and the Atlantic climate means that the hills and valleys will often be shrouded in mists. Make sure you visit the Caldera de Taburiente, one of the world’s largest erosion craters.


La Palma Airport Directions

La Palma Airport is only 6 km south of the capital Santa Cruz and is right on the coast. To get to the capital by hire car you need to take the LP1 and LP2 north until you hit the city’s outskirts.


La Palma Airport Parking

Airport parking at La Palma Airport is underneath the terminal building and has nearly 450 spaces with more than twenty reserved for people with mobility issues. Lifts take you down to the parking level where it should be seconds only to locate your car.


La Palma Airport Flight Information

There are flights to La Palma Airport from the major European airports but there are no budget operators on any of the routes as yet. To get to La Palma from the UK you need to catch the Thomson flights from London Gatwick or Manchester.


Hotels Near La Palma Airport

La Palma has many small hotels all offering good facilities and excellent service. Two of the best are the Parador de la Palma which is set in a natural landscape and has great views. Prices are only 70 euros a night in peak season there. Cheaper still is the Pension la Cubana in the pedestrianized part of the capital where a simple room costs only 22 euros a night.


La Palma Time Zone

La Palma is in the same time zone as the UK, located in the Western European Time Zone (GMT). It adds an hour in summertime.

La Palma Info

Unlike the other Canary Islands, La Palma doesn’t rely on tourism for its main income; a factor that has helped it avoid much of the unemployment faced by its sister islands. Instead it is well known for its agriculture, growing copious amounts of bananas and producing thousands of Strelitzia blooms each year for international markets. As with all of the Canaries, the island is volcanic and has dramatic peaks and valleys formed during seismic activity.

La Palma Trivia:
  • La Palma is the furthest north west of the Canary Islands
  • It’s the fifth biggest of the seven main islands
  • The island is also known as La Isla Bonita or the Island of San Pedro
  • It has the most diverse plant life in the Canary Islands
  • The high point of the island is over 8,000 feet above sea level
