BombillaDeze pagina in Nederlands
Bombilla is a small village on the west coast of La Palma.It lies between Puerto Naos and the lighthouse and Playa Nueva and is easy walking distance from both of the beaches.
It does not win any prizes for prettiness as many of the houses are built of grey blocks which have not been painted. This is NOT, as some people think, a sign of poverty. Most of the houses are second homes and beach houses for people who live in Los Llanos and Santa Cruz. Many do not look special on the outside but a second look will reveal that many are equipped with electricity, running water, satellite tv, are well furnished and contain a kitchen which would make many householders jealous. The size of the cars and pickups is another sign that this is not a poor area ... they are just not pre-occupied with outward neatness.
Bombilla has excellent temperatures the whole year round and the sunsets are impressive.
Bombilla is a favourite location for snorkelling and the diving clubs often visit.
