  • Playa Neuva, La Palma

    Apparently the other name for this brand new beach is Echentive Beach. The beach was formed after the 1971 eruption of Mount Teneguía and that’s what makes it, along with many of the rocks there just about fifty years old. You can access the beach quite easily by trail or car, and the drive is really […]

  • Puerto Naos, La Palma

    The simple and magic combination of palm tree silhouettes in the sunset and a gelato cone. Need I say more?

The town is a historic […]

      Well worth the drive west, Inchydoney is a lovely beach on the good and bad weather days. It’s actually part of an island that’s connected to the mainland by two causeways. If you’re looking for a good spot for lunch or a pint, visit the quaint nearby town of Clonakilty. We were lucky to stop at […]
