Life’s a Beach
Though not as large as neighbouring Tenerife, you can still find luxury resorts and hotels just moments away from the captivating coastline. Stay just 50 metres away from the calming waves and pebble beaches; close enough to be lulled to sleep by the ocean and far enough to enjoy a beautiful view. The unspoilt and mesmerising dark volcanic sands are positioned alongside traditional beaches with golden sand and blue seas. The stunning Valle Gran Rey area sits around a large ravine running down to the ocean, with family-friendly beaches nearby at El Charco and Vueltas.
Whether you're looking to sunbathe, swim, snorkel or indulge in water sports, you'll really be spoilt for choice on your La Gomera holidays. The weather in Tenerife is warm year-round, reaching its hottest points between June and September, making the island popular for those in search of a quieter environment across the course of the year. After a long day in the sunshine, the La Gomera nightlife offers a tranquil end to your day. Explore the quaint streets of old towns such as Agulo and sit back to watch the sunset from a bar while enjoying the local wines. The food is varied and well-priced with many traditional seafood dishes from the Canary Islands to try, as well as international cuisine in San Sebastian and larger resorts.
The bustling capital San Sebastian is ideal for shopping and is home to the port that Columbus set sail from before heading to America. It is from this port that you can explore the seas between La Gomera and Los Cristianos Harbour in Tenerife. You can always stop off at Playa Santiago where you can improve your skills on the golf course, while a visit to Hermigua, the centre of the island's banana industry, is an absolute must if you’re in search of things to do. However, the highlight of holidays in La Gomera is the world heritage site La Garajonay National Park, with stunning forest scenery, mountain peaks, mists and waterfalls that make for truly spectacular walks.
