If you are planning a Barlovento holiday in La Palma, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort and the surrounding area.
Pretty Barlovento to the north east of La Palma is a centre for farming, and a stunning rural La Palma base. Holidays in Barlovento have plenty to offer with easy access into both the Caldera de Taburiente, and down to Santa Cruz de la Palma. If you’re planning a walking holiday, consider Barlovento.
Just outside of Barlovento to the east are the delightful natural saltwater pools set amidst volcanic rocks – just follow the road marked Piscinas de la Fajana off the LP 1 main road. There’s some good snorkelling down here, plus some lovely fish restaurants (checkout La Gaviota – pretty restaurant alongside the beach set within a cave!).
Various arts and crafts centres are also in the area so you will be able to buy a souvenir of your Barlovento holiday. For touring by car Barlovento offers easy access onto the stunningly beautiful rural highway LP 111, and across to towards the west to the magical Parque Cultural La Zarza, one of the main centres for prehistoric decorated caves and rock carvings on La Palma.
