If you’re seeking refuge in one of the lesser visited islands of the Canaries then look no further than La Gomera. Despite being less populated than other islands, La Gomera still offers an array of unspoilt beaches, with the positivity of being much more relaxed than anywhere else in the Canaries.
Due to the nature of the island, holidays to La Gomera are perfect for those looking to just chill out, kick back and relax on their holiday, away from the prying eyes of fellow holidaymakers. Whether you enjoy walking, or tanning yourself on the beach, La Gomera offers unparalleled levels of relaxation, complete with the warmth of the Spanish sun.
As the island is of volcanic origin, this Canary Island destination is ideal for walking and hiking. The volcanoes have forged plunging ravines and beautiful rock cliffs, creating an almost postcard perfect picturesque setting. The upper reaches of the island form the protected environment of Spain’s Garajonay National Park, which, when traversed correctly, offers unparalleled views to hikers.
Those wishing to sample some cuisine can enjoy local wines, accompanied with tapas of cheese or goat meat. The more culinary adventurous travellers can sample miel de palma, a syrup extracted from palm trees or almogrote, a cheese spread.
Holidaymakers wishing to travel further afield, look no further than heading to San Sebastian de La Gomera, where a ferry port offers trips to Tenerife, La Palma and El Hierro. Whilst within the ferry port town, history and culture enthusiasts can make a stop at Casa Del Colon, a museum dedicated to Christopher Columbus. The medieval fort of Torre del Conde, dating back from 1447 is another attractive must see building of note within the San Sebastian de La Gomera area, as the building hosts original maps of La Gomera and San Sebastian.
