Resort Summary

Just south of the of capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma, lies the cluster of hotels, restaurants and bars that make up Los Cancajos. This resort is relatively new and tends to be popular with families looking for a more chilled out vibe for their holiday. The enclosed beaches provide safe areas for children to play and the lack of bars and nightclubs allows for a good night’s sleep.

Due to its proximity to the capital, Los Cancajos is the main beach area and seaside town for the Santa Cruz. With all the convenience of a beach resort – restaurants, bars, grocery stores, a children’s play area – it attracts both day trippers and tourists, and its small size means it’s easy to navigate.

Along the main street in the town centre you’ll find an assortment of tapas bars, with friendly owners serving fresh fish dishes and local wine. Towards the seafront there’s a well-stocked promenade, lined with restaurants and palm trees. It’s only a 10-minute drive from the airport too.
