Holidays to Brena Baja revolve around the great outdoors, and with the region’s rolling hills and meadows, it’s no surprise.
Sleepy Brena Baja
Brena Baja is one of La Palma’s best-kept secrets. Most holidaymakers head straight for nearby Santa Cruz de La Palma and Los Cancajos, so this eastern town has seen little evidence of tourism. Hotels are few and far between, and there’s not a neon-lit bar strip in sight.
Brena Baja’s hilly surroundings are great for walking and hiking – forest trails weave their way between tall pines and spiky cacti. If you don’t fancy putting in the legwork, rent a quad or mountain bike for the day, or saddle up and explore the area on horseback.
It’s only a five-minute drive to the coast, where volcanic stretches of sand and lively tapas bars are easy to come by. The waters around Playa de los Cancajos are great for diving. Meanwhile the capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma, offers Renaissance churches, pavement cafés and antique stores at every turn.
