Getting There

To search flights across all airlines, we recommend using Skyscanner


From the UK: carriers include l:], easyJet and Vueling.

Within Europe: try Air Berlin, Condor, Germania, Transavia, JetAirFly, Iberia Express.

From other Canary Islands: Binter from Tenerife North, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote - this can be the easiest way to reach La Palma for some, preferably via Gran Canaria as Tenerife changeovers involve a 2-hour drive between airports (international flights land at Tenerife South).

By boat: Fred Olsen sails from Tenerife (Los Cristianos) to La Palma (Santa Cruz de la Palma) in about 2.5 hours. Naviera Armas does the same route in about 3.5 hours
Both routes operate near-daily. It is also possible to catch a ferry from Cadiz in mainland Spain, taking about 2.5 days.

Getting Around

You'll want to hire a car, as there are no shops within walking distance of the house - see our car rental recommendations.
