Los Cancajos

May 26, 2019

  If a beach is all you want for your holiday, then frankly you’re better off in Tenerife. But if a beach is part of the mix, then we have two main beach resorts, Los Cancajos and Puerto Naos. Our sand is like the Model T Ford – “Any colour you like, as long as it’s blak”. When the sea mashes up black, volcanic rock, that’s what you get. However,…

Cancajos Salt Pans

December 13, 2018

You can visit a working salt factory on the southern tip of La Palma, but if you’re staying in Cancajos, in Breña Baja, it’s worth taking a peak at the ruined salt factory. The sea front promenade runs south from the main beach along the top of a low cliff, and it’s a very pleasant walk. It’s smooth and flat enough for push chairs. A couple of stone towers stand…

The 1960s concert in Los Cancajos

Los Cancajos held a 1960s fiesta on Saturday. The fun went on all day, but I only saw the concert in the early evening by La Retranka. I was disappointed that so few people dressed up. Let me tell you something – you’ll have a lot more fun if you do. The music was good. After all, there are lots of good songs from the 60s, and this is a…
