Playa Los Cancajos

Los Cancajos Beach — beach is on the east side of the island, located just 2 km. north of the airport and 2 km south of the island capital (Santa Cruz de La Palma). The beach is a bay, protected by breakwaters of volcanic rock which guarantees tranquil waters throughout the year and a rich selection of marine life. For these reasons it’s perfect for first-time scuba divers.

 

With warm, black sands and gentle waves, the semi-urban La Cancajos beach is perfect for cave diving and snorkeling. There are toilets, showers and sunbeds and parasols for hire, parking, bus connections and access for those with limited mobility. There are also a number of restaurants nearby where you can enjoy delicious fresh fish dishes beside the sea, as well as apartments and two “H10” hotels.
