This beautiful beach in downtown Arrecife (capital of the island since the mid 19th century) has been granted a blue flag by the European Union.
From the delightful San Gines lagoon, which harbours small inshore fishing boats, you can follow the coast to El Reducto which boasts a modern seaside promenade that leads to El Cable beach. Fine golden sand and placid waters create a picturesque setting.

There is plenty to see and do in Santa Cruz de La Palma, from visiting the Naval Museum and the 17th century Santa Catalina fort, to walking around the Barranco de las Nieves ravine.

25 Jun 2012Think twice
I'd recommend this carrier if your purpose is just to get from one port to another - but NOT if you're more into something like a cruise. Acciona, at least in the Canaries, is not primarily about passenger transport and it shows. Mostly they seem to be about shipping goods and vehicles and passengers are just an extra. Almost the entire distance from Arrecife to La Palma is covered at night, with only 4 hours of sailing in the daytime. There are two long stops (Gran Canaria and Tenerife), but not long enough to really visit the cities. It's not terribly expensive, though: 120E gets you a cabin for two people for two nights, so you save on accommodation. As to the check-in procedures, *nothing* is explained in advance, and it's very hard to get any information, let alone in English. Overall, it seems like passengers without vehicles are not a substantial source of income from Acciona, so they do not have sufficient motivation to treat them better than other types of goods that are shipped between ports.
