La Palma Transportation Review and Ratings Guide

Whether you arrive to La Palma by sea or air, you will find that this little Atlantic island is connected rather well to the outside world. Several passenger ferries and daily flights to a multitude of international destinations grant easy access.

However, it is worth mentioning that the Santa Cruz Airport (SPC) is frequently subject to closures during the winter/spring months, when strong Atlantic storms pass through the archipelago. While the closure can range from only a couple of hours all the way to several days, it is usually the ships which then provide the most reliable alternative, departing from Puerto Los Christianos in Tenerife. Also the small island hopper airlines will usually make runs during the storm, as they are more flexible with respect to schedules and the pilots know the terrain quite well.

Once you are on the island, you have a number of options to choose from: Bus, taxi, and a number of modern and well maintained rental car offers, to name just a few.
