Green and water, one of the most spectacular combinations the island of La Palma has to offer us and lets us explore and photograph throughout this tour with some of the most amazing places of which three of them are: Playa de Nogales (beach), Cubo de La Galga (Laurel Forrest) and Los Tilos (waterfall).
Although the real tour stars in Puntallana, we will firs meet at S/C de La Palma bus station.
To start the day off, we welcome the sun from Playa de Nogales, in Puntallana, where the black sand and its spectacular rock formations, along with the deserted atmosphere, give us energy to take short and long exposure photos. The beach lets us play with the reflections of the clouds in the sand, the dancing of the waves and every other element that tickles our imagination.
After finishing, we relocate to Cubo de La Galga which is located in the same municipality. Laurel trees and giant Ferns take us into a fairytale. If we are in luck, perhaps we are able to photograph elves and fairies. During winter there is a great possibility of finding mist which adds great opportunities of making amazing shots.
Once we get to the end of this amazing trail, we move on to the next destination of our tour in a neighboring municipality called San Andrés y Sauces where we will find Los Tilos forest and its famous waterfall.
We’ll have lunchtime in “Casa Asterio” restaurant. Right here we will enjoy an amazing meal of typical Canarian recipes.
The bus will be waiting to take us back to S/C de La Palma.
