La Gomera is the dark horse of the Canarian archipelago family, relatively quiet and overshadowed by Tenerife when it comes to tourism. This small island has a big personality, and like the rest of the Canaries, boasts its own unique qualities. A nature lover’s paradise, the beautiful terrain is not to be tread lightly, with 650km of perilous hiking trails revealing breath-taking views of the laurel forest, mountainous landscape and volcanic sites only reachable by foot. The volcanic landscape boasts stunning black sand beaches; a contrast to the golden or white coasts of the Balearics and mainland Spain. They're clean, quiet and ideal for families who aren’t looking for beach bars and busy crowds. Also, the pleasant Canarian climate means La Gomera is the perfect year-round holiday destination.
Discover the island’s charming traditions, such as Siblo Gomero, the region's whistling language. It originated here centuries ago as a means of communication for navigating the island's perilous terrain. After exploring the cultural sites like San Sebastian Church or the Archaeological Museum of La Gomera, why not sign up for a lesson or two to learn the basics of Siblo Gomero! La Gomera offers many places to eat, however, the restaurant that sticks out is far from the usual fine dining experience! Restaurant Mirador de Abrante towers above the southern town of Agulo. Try the glass-floored sky walk first, followed by delicious gastronomy from the restaurant's mouth-watering menu!
