One of the best beaches in La Palma
Nogales Beach, one of the best in La Palma, exemplifies what this beautiful island has to offer: mountains, trails, lava, ocean and lush green landscapes. Located in the northern town of Puntallana, its black volcanic sand, with shades of blue and grey, its spectacular cliffs and the mighty Atlantic have put it on the map; not only for surfers and naturists but also for lovers of solitude, beautiful views and nature trails. If, in addition, you happen to visit when the waters are calm, the possibility of being able to take a wonderful dip makes this a place almost without equal in La Palma.

Compared to other remote beaches, Nogales is easily accessible. Park your car and then follow the 500-metre metre path, where, at the end, the splendour of a wild beach is revealed. There's more on offer here than just a revitilising swim, however; a visit is well worth the while for those in search of peace and closeness to nature in its purest form. The views and the contrast between the lush green landscape, the black sands and the blue of the Atlantic make this spot truly idyllic.
