What will you discover on this tour?

  • Isla Bonita hides a corner where tiny houses stand in the shade of the rocks and the water is so deep blue that hypnotizes: welcome to Porís de Candelaria.
  • Porís de la Candelaria is not an ordinary village, but an idyllic vacation spot that could remind us of a pirate's refuge. Or La Playa, the paradise described by Alex Garland in his novel and made into a movie by Danny Boyle starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • Porís de Candelaria is a village hidden in the vertical and abrupt coast of Tijarafe, in the west of the island of La Palma.
  • Some people also call it Candeleria's proís. What does "proís" mean? According to the RAE: "Stone or other thing on land, on which the boat is moored". On the other hand, the place has been so named in homage to the Virgin of Candelaria, of whom you will find a small image.
  • These curious lodgings have been passed down from one generation to the next. None of them are for sale or have tourist uses.
  • The village consists of a group of houses, very rudimentary, attached to the sea. Porís could not be more surprising. It is located just below a large stone dome produced by the constant volcanic eruptions that took place on the island. It is a natural spectacle where man has managed to integrate without destroying and intervene in this wild, curious and different environment.

Tour Description

"In search of a little paradise"

Tijarafe, in the northwest of La Palma, offers us the opportunity to visit a hidden place of singular beauty: the Porís de Candelaria.

In this municipality, 700 meters above sea level, we find the Barranco del Jurado, from where we will begin the hike in search of a small paradise that hides on the coast of this town of living traditions.

We descend towards the sea along the path PR LP 12.2. We are facing an impressive ravine with almost vertical walls that can reach up to 620 meters high, with peculiar geological formations, farmland, bird populations and interesting species of flora. For this reason, it has been catalogued as a Protected Natural Space of the Jury.

The ravine narrows progressively as we descend along a winding path that leads us to the Jurado beach, a coastal settlement that once served as a seaport where goods, especially salt and fish, came and went.

We ascend along the right bank of the ravine of El Jurado through a winding path, similar to the descent path, observing amazing views of the ravine and the immense blue sea.

In less than half an hour on foot and with our eyes set on the cliffs and steep western coast of the island, we will arrive at a curious natural harbor, built in honor of the Virgin of Candelaria, where we will have free time before the return transfer.

A cave of approximately 50 meters high that houses a row of white houses of a century old, crystal clear waters of a sea whose sound floods around you and a postcard image difficult to erase, welcome us to Porís de Candelaria.

Here, time stands still. Here, words are superfluous.
Our search for a little paradise is over.
