Explore the Salt fields of Fuencaliente

In the south of the island of La Palma, you will notice these unique salt fields, which have been listed as an Official Site of Scientific Interest because many migratory birds use the site to rest. 

Fuencaliente de La Palma (or simply Fuencaliente) is a Canarian municipality belonging to the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It is located in the south of the island of La Palma. The municipal capital is called Los Canarios, although the neighborhood of Las Indias matches it in population. Other minor population centers are Los Quemados, Las Caletas, La Fajana and the hamlet of El Charco.

One of the most-visited parts of all La Palma is the salt fields of Fuencaliente that offers some of the most beautfuil landscapes where the contrasts of the white of the salt, the blue of the sea and the black of the volcanic earth paint a picture of immense beauty. Nature’s color palette spectacularly paints the salt fields. Visitors can hike around these fields and enjoy the view. The tracks are in good condition and routes are well signed. It is free to visit this site but if one wants to have an insight into the complete history and surroundings then there is a €5.00 fee per person to visit the museum which also sheds light on the history of the two lighthouses as well.
