White sandy beaches, cocktails, and a warm ocean breeze – this and more awaits you on the Canary Islands’ La Palma. Prepare for an authentic tropical getaway and book your flights from Zurich to La Palma with SWISS or one of our subsidiaries.
An island known as one of Spain’s most luxurious getaway destinations, on La Palma, you can expect to find everything from vibrant nightlife to historic architecture, rugged natural vistas, unique cuisine, but above all, the ability to shed your troubles and simply enjoy life for a while.
The opportunity to relax on the beach is ever present – but for those more adventurous souls, a jaunt inland will reveal a natural landscape unlike any other. Like all the Canary Islands, La Palma is the result of volcanic activity, and this can be clearly seen with a visit to Caldera de Taburiente – a huge geological feature with some of the most spectacular natural views on Earth.
Wander among the island’s famous water tunnels – natural structures carved by the streams and rivulets that tumble from the mountains, bringing water to the people in the towns below. A visit to these tunnels – which requires a permit – is popular among tourists who are given the opportunity to see how the natural erosion gives way to man-made canals and aqueducts – a truly enchanting experience.
Thanks to a road that rounds the entire island and features a convenient bus service, explorers and backpackers will discover relatively easy access to the different sites around the island. Back in the capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma, you’ll be met with a welcoming population with numerous eating and entertainment venues, offering traditional Canarian cuisine. With all of this and more, there has never been a better time to book your flights from Zurich to La Palma than right now.
