La Capellana

La Capellana

La Palma

Route: La Capellana

Area: La Palma

Date of walk: 23rd January 2017

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 3.8 miles

Weather: Some cloud but mostly sunny

On our first night in La Palma we stayed in a hotel near the airport on the east coast of the island, and on the next day we drove to our rented villa – La Capellana – on the west coast. By the time we arrived there was only time for a short walk, so we decided to get our bearings and explore the area near our villa

The map showed a walking route nearby – the PRLP 12.2 – and so we walked along the access road from the villa to join it and to see where it might take us

The route took us along quiet tracks and paths, with a couple of short road sections, gradually descending towards the Playa del Jorado but as we progressed further it became apparent that we’d be unable to reach the beach and return in daylight hours, as there still remained a very steep descent and re-ascent

We contented ourselves with the wonderful sea views we’d enjoyed and having done so retraced our steps back to the start

It’s unlikely that this walk will be followed by anyone else but this is my walking diary, not a guidebook, and it deserves an honourable mention. We enjoyed the short excursion and we look forward to some longer walks later this week…
