On the edge of the hillside overlooking the beach of Puerto Naos, is a place which on its own merits, is the most popular flying spot on the island - Puerto Naos. Located in the west of La Palma and belonging to the municipality of Los Llanos de Aridane, this tourist area brings together lots of paragliding enthusiasts. It has a very busy take off due to its easy access and because in normal weather conditions its thermals make an ascent of over 1,000 metres possible.
Take off at 230 metres
The great combination of flying with landscapes works fantastically in Puerto Naos. At a height of 230 metres, this west-southwest take off is suitable for experts and beginners alike. To get there, just take a tarred track which leads off from the Puerto Naos to Los Llanos de Aridane road at the 2.5 kilometre point. The landing, however, takes place near the promenade and only in emergencies can it be made on the beach.
