A little-known island of La Palma is described by many as the beautiful island of the Canary Islands ( "la isla bonita").
It's true, the scenery is quite simply out of this world. It gives you a rush of adrenaline and goose bumps time, he really so special. This is the steepest island in the world, and the species is probably not like most people who have ever seen before.
In my opinion, it is this volcanic island strymlivasts this saved him from being able to be another Tenerife or Majorca, where the only thing that can be called mass tourism. In La Palma there is simply no available long flat white sandy beaches with a known Canary Islands, and tourists want.
Instead, La Palma has a smaller volcanic bays with black sand and beaches, which are often difficult to get to the usual tourist sites & # 39 without them. For example, one of the most beautiful beaches on the west of the island – "Playa de la Veta", which includes a twenty minute drive up a steep road, then another twenty minutes on foot along the cliff path and break through the tunnel. This is exactly the way in which the La Palma, natural and genuine. This is one of the best places for hiking.
La Palma, of course, is more accessible beaches such as Tezakorte, Puerto Naos and, of course, the capital of Santa Cruz. And it is here where in La Palma has a reasonable part of the neon lights and cheap accommodation packages, which is still limited to these areas. The best tourist accommodation to date with the & # 39 are villas. There are many available, often in idyllic rural settings with private pools.
People have been talking about how to change the island, as it often happens. The government has plans for tourism to put La Palma on the map. Currently, the main problem with the & # 39 is that the airport is not large enough to pryparkavannya aircraft, and in particular, the runway is not long enough for the takeoff of large aircraft. As a result, the airport was expanded to a huge cost. The new airport has not yet opened. Ask the locals and they will say: "Small island, big airport!" However, I believe that when some airlines will increase its schedule of flights and will begin arriving other airlines, the airport does not seem so big.
The island also went on site from golf, and many will be opened in the next few years. To do this, a lot of rural land has been taken away. In order to keep close to the golf course, they are building some typical large hotels, in which a hundred rooms.
Of course, local residents are skeptical of tourism. Fortunately, I do not think La Palma will ever be "Playa de las America" - the geography of the island of La Palma has not been created so. I just hope that with tourism being treated with sympathy, so the local economy will benefit and tourists will be able to assess what the world offers this island in a chaotic world.
