Puerto Naos, La Palma

CopyrightPaulaVermeulen-5739-2

The simple and magic combination of palm tree silhouettes in the sunset and a gelato cone. Need I say more? Honestly, though, if you’re looking for another good sunset spot, other than Tazacote, Puerto Naos is super. It feels a bit more finished, or fancy, because of the investment that was put into the beachfront area. It feels touristy, and like a slow holiday. The beach itself is pretty nice, but when the wind comes from the north in the early afternoon, it can be a bit much.

EAT

If your stomach’s a-grumbling, make your way along the beachfront and peak into the restaurants and ice cream shops. Most of them have good simple menus, amazing fresh juices and there’s a gelato place as well. They’re all facing the beach and the sun as it sets. It can get a bit windy here, so bring a shawl or something light. We sat down outside at Las Olas for some tapas and rather enjoyed it. Everything tastes better in sunshine, am I right?

There are a few other restaurants in the town, including a pizza place near the Spar, if I remember correctly.
