La Palma has lots of lovely viewpoints, and I just discovered a new one, at Montaña de las Toscas above Mazo.
It has wonderful views up to the central ridge, and down towards Santa Cruz and the airport.
If you think you can see a long way during the day, come back at night! This is one of the island’s astronomical viewpoints, so there are information panels explaining the night sky, and a signpost to the pole star, 434 light years away. Each astronomical viewpoint is different, and this one has information on nocturnal wildlife.
To get there, take the LP1 to just south of Mazo (between km 7 and 8) and then the LP2062 (signposted PIRS). Follow this for 1.7 km, and then take the concrete track to the right (signposted “Mirador de unreadable”) for half a kilometre.
