Miradores - View Points

In order to always enjoy new impressions of the manifold landscapes of La Palma you find a large number of viewpoints.

Mirador de Cancelita de La Palma

They are called „miradores“ and are located along the well constructed street system. From the coast up to the highest peas they provide guests with magnificent panoramic views.


„miradores astronómicos“ — astronomic viewpoints

The milky way unfolds and you can observe orbiting satellites.


Dedicated to this spectacle many „miradores astronómicos“ (astronomic viewpoints) have been established.

Many companies specialized in astro-tourism on La Palma offer guided night tours for star gazing using telescopes and providing insider know how.

During Daylight the view of those Miradores is spectacular as well!


Some viewpoints are veiled in clouds, however, this can also be a memorable experience.


Especially when the sky opens up again and the sun is breaking through the clouds.

Those viewpoints are perfect places to visit during your trips, taking a break, enjoying panoramic views and inhaling different kinds of fragrances, from sea salt to the scent of pine wafts up to the clear mountain air.

You find an extensive and variable outline of Miradores around the island. Discover and have fun!
