Traffic Information

La Palma Airport is 5 miles south of the city center and your hotel or apartment is just a short drive from our car rental in La Palma Canarias branch via the LP 1. The LP 1 is one of the main routes that encircle the island along with the LP 3. However, some local roads are little more than tracks and La Palma is known for its rugged terrain. It is well worth considering a 4X4 or SUV if you plan to drive to popular places like the Los Tilos walk or El Roque de Los Muchachos, the highest spot on the island.

You will be pleased to learn that La Palma is a duty free zone, so gas is cheaper here than in Spain and the rest of Europe. Most hotels have parking spaces but you can also purchase inexpensive discs that allow you to park in blue zones in towns like Santa Cruz, Las Manchas or El Paso. Be sure to check that you are legally parked as delivery only zones are designated by both yellow and blue signs.

Sixt Tips

The island is known for its beautiful beaches, its magnificent volcanoes and its amazing scenery. However, La Palma is also a big hit with astronomy enthusiasts and the island is considered one of the best places to see the stars. With a car rental in La Palma Canarias, it is easy to plan road trips to some of the best viewing spots or organize outings to some of the unique towns and villages that dot the coast and interior.

Sightseeing Destinations
