La Gomera Holidays
La Gomera slips under the radar when it comes to classic Canary Island holidays. But those who venture here are rewarded with incredible mountain vistas and the bewitching sound of the whistled Silbo language that can be heard from peak to peak. Get off the beaten track and discover a bohemian island that focuses on its natural splendour.
Untouched, naturally stunning and mesmerising
Accessible only by ferry, La Gomera may take longer to get to, but you’ll be heavily rewarded for your efforts. Avid hikers describe this island as a treasure trove of beautiful treks, especially through the ancient forests of Garajonay, whilst you can still get your dose of sunbathing and coastal beauty in the chilled capital San Sebastián. This is your chance to get a taste of Spanish living without crowds of tourists – an experience that’s well worth relishing.
Why visit La Gomera?
- La Gomera’s landscape is truly captivating. The usual golden beaches associated with the Canary Islands is swapped with huge, soaring mountains that seamlessly flow into lush valleys, and craggy cliffs framed by black pebble shores. Venture to Garajonay National Park to experience a forest much like ones you see in fairy-tales, or enjoy a hike to the jaw-dropping Los Roques viewpoint to see the majestic top of the rock. Missing the beach? Valle Gran Rey offers a colourful village alongside curious black sand bays.
- This gorgeous island is best for those who want a quiet holiday away from the usual nightlife and busy beaches the Canary Islands are known for. Even the capital city, San Sebastián, is low-key and laidback, offering a break from touristy places and instead boasting first-class restaurants, boutique shops and designer hotels. Most days are best spent enjoying fresh fish at family-owned restaurants, venturing to La Laguna Grand for an afternoon of scenic hikes and listening out for the UNESCO-protected Silbo language – a whistled register of Spanish.
