The gorgeous island of La Palma is a haven of natural beauty – the forests, clear night skies and breath-taking landscapes are just the beginning. This, among other reasons, is why we’ve handpicked it as a fantastic holiday destination, especially for independent travellers.
It can be difficult to choose which Canary Island you should visit and, truth be told, it’s hard to go wrong. However, one of our top choices is La Palma. It’s beautiful, quiet and known for its incredible nature reserves – the perfect destination for solo travellers looking to get back in touch with themselves as they discover the island. Here are our favourite hotels: three lovely accommodation choices that will help you get the most out of your relaxed independent holiday.
If you’re looking to get away from it all and spend some time by yourself, Dona Armida is one of our favourite options. It is set amid banana plantations and is made up of six rooms, all decorated in a unique style. Spend your morning indulging in the homemade breakfast served on the terrace and the remainder of your day relaxing on the sunbeds by the pool. Here you will be able to re-centre yourself in a perfectly peaceful atmosphere.
Casa La Reverica
For a rural location, picturesque views and Canarian rustic charm, we recommend staying at Casa La Reverica. It is comprised of three quaint, single-storey cottages, each with a washing machine, a fully-equipped kitchen and a terrace. They are a lovely option for those travelling alone as they offer all the everyday conveniences one could need, as well as a nearby restaurant and supermarket. Come to relax, stay because the Casa has begun to feel like your home.
Parador de La Palma
Parador de La Palma is one of our top accommodation choices for independent travellers. The rooms offered are all sea-facing and feature a balcony and lovely views of the Atlantic, making them a relaxing spot to pass a quiet afternoon. However, should you wish to get out and explore, it is ideally-located near both a town and the countryside. This gives you the chance to do whatever suits you that day, whether it’s leisurely strolling through Brena Baja’s streets or getting lost in the island’s natural beauty.
