La Palma is an island for individual holidaymakers. The island is sparsely populated, mass tourism, nightlife and hotspots are almost non-existent. Instead, pure nature, secluded beaches, spectacular hiking trails, restaurants with outdoor terraces by the sea. Corona cases on La Palma have been very low throughout the pandemic and continue to be so. Of course, the usual hygiene and mask rules apply, but regardless of that you can enjoy a carefree holiday. Restaurants, shops and island attractions are open.
