La Palma has a number of beautiful beaches which are only a short drive from Hotel Olio. Puerto Tazacorte is a wonderful family friendly beach with colourful houses and many restaurants and shops lining the sea front. Also, close by are Puerto Naos and Charco Verde which are also easy to access and have lifeguards on duty.
For the more adventurous there are some remote and rugged beaches in the North of the island. Playa de la Veta is a stunning secluded cove but to enjoy this beauty you have to hike some 30 minutes down a steep pathway and drive down an ‘interesting’ road which tests the nerves and driving skills. However, this special place is well worth the effort to reach.
