Only 50 minutes by boat from Tenerife, La Gomera is a whole world apart.
You will quickly forget the hustle and bustle of Los Cristianos as you travel to this subtropical eco-haven where time seems to stand still.
The second smallest of the Canary Islands, La Gomera is a laid-back little volcanic island, only 14 miles in diameter. La Gomera’s unique volcanic landscapes are a must-see: palm trees, banana plantations, fern rainforests dotted with peaceful whitewashed hamlets… all topped with dramatic peaks and gorges.
Not as touristy or developed as Gran Canaria or Tenerife, La Gomera is the undiscovered gem in the crown of the Canary Islands.
The ecosystem of the island’s Garajonay National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. And did you know La Gomera even has its own whistling language? Keep an ear out for locals using the fascinating ‘Silbo Gomero’.
