|The North West of La Palma is very popular with walkers and people seeking peace and quiet.|
Tijarafe is a small village on the steep hillside on the west side of La Palma. The holiday homes are spread out over the landscape and most have a terrific view.
The weather in the North West of La Palma is generally very sunny and very pleasant. In the winter months the night temperatures can drop to 15C, with exceptionally 10C, but all the houses have heating if needed. There can be short periods of cloud and rain between November and March which is of course why this area is greener than The Valley. It seldom rains in the summer. In the spring (mid-January to March) the tens of thousands of almond trees flower, followed by the codesa (a type of gorse), the sweet smelling broom and the orange trees.
This area is handy for visiting the Roque de los Muchachos (highest point), the small, almost deserted, villages in the north and the caves and hyrogliths of the original inhabitants. There are many walking routes which criss-cross the area.
