The small town of Puntallana, or San Juan de Puntallana, lies just off the LP1 main road 10km north from the capital and harbour of Santa Cruz and just a further 5km to La Palma airport. This makes it a great location who don't want a long journey after arriving on La Palma.
As it lies approximately mid-point in the east, it's great for exploring both the north and south of island as well as visiting the west of La Palma.
Puntallana sits between the beach of Santa Cruz to the south and the beach of Puerto Espindola and Charco Azul sea pool to its north.
In times gone by, Puntallana was a large producer of wheat and was known as the granero – the granary - of the island.
Nowadays, vines, vegetables, fruit and bananas plantations have taken over as being the main source of income and so it is still very much an agricultural area.
