Things to do in La Gomera, Canary Islands

Beaches - Unlike its near neighbour, Tenerife, the beaches close to your La Gomera villa are mainly pebble with some sand. Valle Gran Rey has three beaches. The Charco del Conde’s beach is shallow and offers safe paddling but Playa del Inles is more rugged and dangerous for swimming. It is also a naturist beach.

Exploring the Island - La Gomera is ideal for walking, hiking and cycling to explore this rugged island. Enjoy the tranquility of the area and the beautiful views from your accommodation in La Gomera. The terrain can be quite strenuous as it is very hilly and there are few signposted paths.

Walk through Gomera’s Rainforest - The Parque National de Garajonay is one of the world’s oldest laurel tree forests. The woods on the island are made up of many ancient trees which make a pleasant shady walk. Heather trees thrive here and are several metres high, unlike the low-growing Scottish heather. Have a picnic and hear the local legend of the two lovers.

Very quiet location, amazing views of valley and ocean. We all loved the hammocks. Interior possibly a little outdated but satisfied our needs. Close to beach of la caleta, entrance to national park and San Sebastian. Friendly people. Thanks for a lovely stay!

We loved the gardens, one with a picnic table which we used to enjoy all meals but also the lawn area and barbecue (which we used 3 times) which was very functional and secluded and warm in the afternoon sun. With a clear sky on 4 evenings we were able to enjoy starry skies but we also went to Alto de Garajonay, the highest point on the island (only about a 40 minute drive followed by a 20 minute walk), to see a wonderful, 360 deg dark sky with thousands of stars, which was our main reason for visiting La Gomera (also went there during one of the days and could see the Islands of El Hierro, La Palma and Tenerife all showing above cloud tops -fantastic views. The Cottage is a perfect base for exploring the Island and with a hired car from "Cicar" we visited most of the large towns on the Island (roads are a bit twisty though so be careful). The cottage is well equipped and everything worked including the heating heaters, which we did have to use some mornings and nights because although the days were lovely and warm, it did tend to get a bit cool at night, which was to be expected in March. All in all a lovely holiday in a lovely cottage which we would definitely book again if we return. Holiday dates 25th March to 1st April 2017 Doug and Lin, Oxfordshire, England
