A Starlight Reserve

The San Borondón vantage point, in the west of La Palma on the coast of Tazacorte takes full advantage of a natural terrace over the Atlantic Ocean. From there, with the help of two information panels, you can observe the extraordinary skies of La Palma, the first island in the world to be named a Starlight Reserve for its light pollution control. Easy to get to on foot but with no parking facilities, there are also public services nearby in Tazacorte port.

Admire the constellations from this astronomic viewpoint

From mid-Autumn at the San Borondón viewpoint it’s possible to see the North Star and the Cassiopeia constellation with its M shape and the Cepheus constellation created by a group of less sparkling stars. On dark nights when there is no moon you can also see the luminous band of the Milky Way from Cassiopeia to the Cygnus in the Northern Cross.
