About La Gomera
One of the littlest Canary Islands, La Gomera is so different from its bigger siblings as to be almost unrecognisable. Apart from its location…One witty visitor remarked that its landscape is like a Terry's Chocolate Orange which has been tapped and part opened, and is now gently melting into the beautiful sea. Indeed the best places to stay in La Gomera couldn't be more different from the vast sprawling resorts that you expect to encounter in the Canaries.
Instead of resort lined beaches and beach lined resorts, those alighting from the hydrofoil on La Gomera find themselves amongst banana plantations and ancient laurel forests. Backed by the steep volcano, and its surrounding gorges, which sits in the centre of the island.
Just 22kms across, there's plenty more varied terrain to explore - and just because we haven't gotten on to the beaches yet that doesn't mean they're not something special! All these views are linked by trails and bridleways, so La Gomera is perfect if your idea of a holiday paradise isle comes with plenty of opportunities to do some walking. And with the opportunity to see unusual plants and animals.
Whether you're a walker or not you should still try and make time to visit the laurel forest on the top of the island - it's a World Heritage Site, but its strange moss and lichen covered trees are an eerie and beautiful sight.
As well as walkers this is a great spot for divers.
Historic La Gomera
- Columbus set sail from La Gomera, the capital and main port San Sebastian, to be precise. This is where many people choose to stay, it's got some charming historic buildings and a couple of excellent black sandy beaches. Parador de la gomera, a chicly converted manor house, is one of the best places to stay on La Gomera if you want to be in San Sebastian. Traditional, with stunning cliff top views, this hotel has plenty of Canary character.
La Gomera for Foodies
- As well as bananas, La Gomera's volcanic soil has also been producing distinctive wine and an abundance of fruit since Roman times. Hermigua is where many of the lushest plantations can be found, and is also where some of the island's higher end accommodation options can be uncovered. As well as lush vegetation there are some nice beaches with views all the way to Tenerife.
Beach Break La Gomera
- Valle Gran Rey has the island's nicest beaches, and thus the largest beach resorts.
- Playa de Santiago is the second tourist resort area - this is the best place to stay on La Gomera for golfers, as it has the only course, part of the Jardin Tecina resort. Jardin Tecina is a 460 room resort, with loads of facilities, so its a great place for families and those who want to take things easy.
From either of these resorts you can arrange a boat trip to see the vast, volcanic-formed, church-organ like cliffs of Los Organos Cliffs - something like 'The Giant's Causeway', but on a larger scale.
Unique La Gomera
As well as the distinct charm of its black sandy beaches, La Gomera has many unique charms. For one, the residents of La Gomera have created their own way of communicating across their ravine-lined landscape, and this whistling way of speaking is considered so important culturally that it's still taught to school children.
