Santa Cruz De La Palma, Canary Islands Overview

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.

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.

Beautiful landscapes, as this Island was born of volcanic rock straight from the ocean! Black sand beaches, farms etc...It was beautiful...and not so expensive. a hidden gem for many in America, unless you cruise there.

This was the one port on this cruise where we booked an excursion through the ship. We had visited this port during our last Transatlantic but didn't do the four hour island tour. This time we got to see the whole island, visited the silk museum, Bodega Teneguia and the cactus garden in El Paso. We enjoyed a wine tasting at Bodega Teneguia and left with three bottles of wine. Buying direct at this winery was 3€ cheaper per bottle than is was at the port's duty free shops. We could definitely spend a week here for sure.
