La Palma is the fifth largest of Spain's Canary Islands, which are a scenic chain of sun-drenched islands off the coast of Africa. La Palma has a volcanic landscape and is noted for scientific observatories which take advantage of its'clear and translucent atmosphere.
Second Life's La Palma Sculpture Garden, designed and curated by Peli Dieterle at the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) 10, does a very good job of showing what makes La Palma such a major tourist attraction -- gorgeous fine beaches, volcanic calderas, and a magnificent coast line. The bright modern sculptures collection shown here blends in well with the landscape-- but it is the design of the island itself that you want to visit.
This is a great place to go alone or with someone special (dancing is available) to hike, lay on the beach, and look at some very nice art. I would like to see La Palma as a permanent Second Life attraction on its own sim without the constraints of surrounding walls to shield views from neighboring sims. But for now, make sure to visit La Palma while it is up as an LEA exhibit.
