La Palma, often better known as “la isla bonita” (the pretty island to you and me) is one of the most underrated holiday destinations of the 21st century! Its surprisingly green landscape, coupled with its beautiful beaches and incredibly star gazing opportunities, is what should draw people to its shores. As well as this it has an impressive volcano always lingering in the background, making it the perfect holiday; combining beach holiday with a few quirks to keep people entertained.
The flights that I have found are available through norwegian.com for a bargain of £62 per person! Leaving from London Gatwick, which is really easy to get to either by train or by car, La Palma is then only 4 hours away! If you choose the dates that I have chosen to use as an example booking, then you will arrive in La Palma in perfect time to get to your hotel and grab something to eat. If you would like to find a hotel, I can recommend using trivago.co.uk to find some really good bargains!
One example of what can be found on Trivago if you are wanting to keep it to a budget is the Brenas Garden Apartments. These Apartments are located towards the southern part of the island, but is still central enough to be easy to find! They received a rating of 77% on TripAdvisor which is pretty good going considering the rooms are going from only £30 per night! If you wanted to go a little bit more upmarket because you’ve saved so much money on your flights and such, then you could try staying in the 4* hotel La Palma Romantica. This hotel is situated in the northern region of Barlovento and has received a rating of 81% on TripAdvisor, as well as a Certificate of Excellence for 2014!
La Palma is one of those islands which always has something else for you to do. It offers a variety of hikes, beautiful beach walks to lighthouses, as well as the opportunity to relax on its sandy beaches and let your troubles slowly slip away! It’s the perfect way to break up your Winter. Do be warned, however! It won’t be as cold as the UK but equally, it won’t be 30°C! Either way, this is an opportunity too good to miss, flights this cheap won’t stay around for very long!
