Mirador El Time

It's a 3-kilometer uphill hike from Puerto de Tazacorte to this excellent viewing platform, from where sweeping vistas of the La Palma coastline and settlements unfold. There is a panoramic cafe serving refreshments at the top. The viewpoint can also be reached by car or public bus.

Do & See

La Palma attracts adventurous types – leisurely sunbathing is often overlooked in favour of hiking the island's volcanic landscapes, exploring verdant laurel greenery and discovering the magic of Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. La Palma's weather conditions are excellent for paragliding, and although beaches are far from being the island's primary appeal, there are a few attractive swimming locations dotting the coastline.
