Located in the mid-north east of La Palma, San Andres and Los Sauces comprise the village of San Andres by the sea and the busy inland town of Los Sauces 150m above sea level.
In the old days, San Andres was the most important area of the two and revered for its production of sugar cane. Even today though, sugar cane is grown in the area and is the source for the rum distillery, Ron Aldea.
For the visitor and resident alike, there are several points of interest, Charco Azul (Blue Lagoon) being one of the main ones. This is a great place for swimming and sunbathing.
Nearby is the Puerto de Espindola with its large sand beach and marina. And as you'd guess, several excellent restaurants with a choice of fresh fish on the menu.
Inland is the Los Tilos forest of Laurisilva and the Marcos y Cordero springs, the heart of the spring water on La Palma.
