Motorcycle Holiday with La Palma 24: Accessories and Shuttle Service
An important point is the limited baggage: Who wants to drive during their stay with the rental motorcycles over La Palma does not have to bring their heavy leather clothes and other utensils. Helmets, jackets, gloves and kidney belts can be also rented for a fee at La Palma 24.
Miki has set up a shuttle service for those who want to drive during their stay only a motorbike. This means: On arrival at the airport of Santa Cruz de La Palma (SPC), the team from La Palma 24 awaits the bikers with a rental car, which the bikers can use to transport themselves and their luggage to their accommodation. Afterwards they drive with the car to the office in Todoque, where the motorbikes are ready prepared. Upon departure, everything works the same – only the other way round. By the way: an additional driver can be booked when the driver also fulfilled the rental conditions (see below).

On the Road to La Palma:
The Path is the Goal
The days when you could drive around La Palma only on bumpy roads are gone. Today the Isla Bonita offers for bikers around 1.200 kilometres of asphalt on large streets, sometimes on small streets. Those people who come to the Isla Bonita for motorcycling are usually not in hurry and choosing often the smaller side streets. The motto is: "The path is the goal" – this guarantees from north to south and west to east constantly changing amazing landscapes, friendly waiter and waitress in rustic pubs along the way and pleasant climatic conditions. It can be sometimes fresh on the pick of the mountains, even in summer. We recommend the onion-shell principle: motorcycle jacket - sweatshirt - T-Shirt - beach clothes!
