Journey to La Palma by plane...


La Palma, isla bonita
»journey to La Palma by plane
If you are planning to travel by plane, you can either go directly to La Palma, or you take a plane to Tenerife-South (or Tenerife-North). Often the flights to Tenerife are cheaper, but you have to continue your journey by ferry or transfer to a small plane, to get to La Palma.

...directly to Santa Cruz de la Palma (SPC)

La Palma, the westernmost of the Canary Islands, has an international airport. All of the bigger charter carriers go directly to Santa Cruz de la Palma (SPC) several times a week, in the summer there are also the Spanish low-cost carriers from Barcelona and Madrid. The airport is located on the east coast of the island within the municipality of Villa de Mazo, about 8 km south of the capital Santa Cruz.

...to Tenerife-South (TFS)

Teneriffa-South/"Reina Sofia" is the biggest airport of the Canaries, airplanes from all over Europe and Central America are landing at two minutes intervals. According to this there is a chance of booking a flight to Tenerife-South on good terms. A taxi takes you from the airport to the harbour in Los Cristianos (15 km, about 20 Euros), where the ferries to La Palma leave several times a week.

...to Tenerife-North (TFN)

The ones who booked a particularly favourable flight to Tenerife often realize too late that the plane they are sitting in is heading towards Tenerife-Nord/"Los Rodeos". But that's not the end of the world. The Canarian airline "Binter Canarias" starts from TFN to Santa Cruz de la Palma several times a day. The duration of the flight is about 30 minutes and includes spectacular views of Tenerife's famous vulcano "Pico del Teide" (3814 m).

Journey to La Palma by ferry...


For centuries Santa Cruz de la Palma was famous for its shipbuilders, who were said to be the best of the world - amongst others the "Amistad" was built here, one of the last Spanish slave ships.

»journey by ferry
There's no more shipbuilding today, life is laid-back in the harbour: The Canarian car and foot passenger ferrries of Fred.Olsen and Naviera Armas are landing several times a week, the public ferry company Acciona (formerly Trasmediterranea) is taking import goods to the island, and a small marina is welcoming sailors from time to time, that have a break on their route to the Caribean.

»from Tenerife and other Canaries to La Palma


...from Cádiz/Spain

In 2006 Acciona/Trasmediterránea stopped passenger transportation to La Palma, causing popular outrage. Travelling by car from Cádiz is possible via Santa Cruz de Tenerife or Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The passage is quite pricy and takes you more than 24 hours.

• Santa Cruz de la Palma – Cádiz departure FRI 16:00 arrival MON 12:30


...from Tenerife and other Canaries

The Norwegian-Canarian shipping company Fred.Olsen is running the passage Los Cristianos/Tenerife - Santa Cruz de la Palma almost daily. With the modern "Benchijigua Exprés" it takes you about three hours, travelling with the trimaran can be quite bumpy. A single ticket is about 50 Euros.
