Tazacorte is a charming town halfway up the western (sunny) side of the island. It is a hour's drive from the airport/Santa Cruz and perfectly placed for expeditions north or south along the coast or into the mountains by car or bus. It has a couple of top restaurants and cheaper bars/eateries, two good supermarkets and a petrol station. Puerto Tazacorte, five minutes drive down to the coast, has a number of beachside bars and restaurants and a clean (black) sandy beach. The apartment is well-equipped with easy free parking and a very short walk to the town square and other amenities. The modest but adequate balcony gets the sun from the middle of the day onwards. If you are after a wild nightlife or man-made tourist attractions La Palma is probably not a destination for you, but for walkers, nature lovers or just plain lotus-eaters eaters, it's a delight.
Highly recommended on a quiet street. Clean, nearby Tazacorte centre and cosy Puerto de Tazacorte where the sun always shines.
La Palma is off the beaten track, Tazacorte even more so. It is a mixture of tourists in the know and bohemian types. Great vibe.
The flat was nicely prepared and had everything we needed. Logistics worked out well (sending a few Whatapp messages etc)
Follow the driving instructions, don't look at the map when you get into Tazacorte as you have come back on yourself due a one way system.
Overall I plan to return, great break.
Really looking forward to staying here for a week in November but unfortunately the owner cancelled our booking after we had booked with him and booked flights so we had to book accommodation unexpectedly elsewhere
