South of the city of Santa Cruz de La Palma is La Palma Airport, operated and owned by Aena Aeropuertos, one of the world's leading airport operators. It’s located along an old lava flow of a nearby volcano which can be found to the south of the city also. It’s worth a look, and car hire from La Palma Airport will have you exploring the sights in no time. Hiring a car is useful in this sort of area as the area is hilly, based around farmlands, with little public transport.
