Views over banana plantations in the Aridane valley
The Time Viewpoint overlooks one of the most spectacular views on the island of La Palma: the vast valley of Aridane, covered by banana plantations and cut by the deep gorge of Las Angustias, which ends in the charming port of Tazacorte. On a clear day, the island of El Hierro can be seen. This viewpoint, located 700 metrers above sea level, is on the LP-1 road, between the towns of Los Llanos de Aridane and Puntagorda: an ideal place to recharge on a car journey over the western side of La Palma.
A pathway with spectacular views from Tazacorte
It is also possible to reach the Time Viewpoint on foot by walking up a steep, rocky, three-kilometre road that zig-zags up from Tazacorte’s old quay on the coast. The trail is difficult, but the breathtaking views more than compensate. On arrival, walkers can reward themselves in the viewpoint bar, with a slice of Spanish omelette and a barraquito – a typical local way of drinking coffee with condensed milk and liqueur. The view after dark is even more amazing, if that is possible.
