This may have been my favorite port on the trip (not including Barcelona) . Such a cute little town right off the ship. Cobblestone roads reveal great little shops. There is a market up one of the main roads, beautiful flowers, produce and more. But, there is a little “bar” right inside, they juice fresh sugar cane and lime for the most amazing mojitos! Found a great bottle of a local vodka, a volcanic distilled. Convinced it was just “marketing” I still grabbed a bottle. We got it home, and I have to say it’s pretty great! Loved that there is a wooden walk way down to the beaches and showers at the top. The black lava rock sand is beautiful. Stopped for a few pastries that were delicious.

About Santa Cruz De La Palma, Canary Islands
La Palma is a stratovolcano, and is the largest of the western Canary Islands. At the island's east-coast is located the picturesque port-town of Santa Cruz. Behind it, like a colossal amphitheater, there is a mighty volcanic crater. This town, with its characteristical steeply inclined alleys, offers a really lively ambience.
