The small island of La Gomera is a hidden gem of wild landscapes and unique sites among the Canary Islands. La Gomera is different from the rest of the Canary Islands as it doesn’t offer the tourist trappings of golden beaches and wild nightlife associated with the Canaries.
The island is defined by the rugged volcanic landscape, which has been shaped by centuries of erosion and volcanic activity. The beautiful Garajonay National Park which highlights the beautiful landscape and is full of unique and magnificent flora and fauna not to be found anywhere else in the world is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
La Gomera is the perfect destination for those seeking a more active holiday as there is a myriad of hiking trails all across the island, weaving through the lush and spectacular terrain. There are also plenty of opportunities to indulge in some mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, diving and sailing, or simply relax on one of the small, untouched cove beaches.
La Gomera isn’t served by any major airlines and is most easily reached by a ferry from the nearby island of Tenerife, which offers the perfect opportunity to combine stays on both islands for a multi-centre stay holiday.
