The almost circular island of La Gomera is the second smallest of the seven Canary Islands
Having remained relatively untouched by tourism compared to its neighbours, La Gomera is punctuated by dramatic ravines and verdant valleys, with black sandy beaches and cliffs around its 90-kilometre coastline.
The UNESCO-protected Garajonay National Park with its famous laurel forest covers nearly one tenth of this fascinating island, which has been popular with travellers for centuries – Christopher Columbus stopped here prior to his voyage in 1492!
With Pico de Garajonay standing 1,487 metres above sea level, a rainforest and breathtaking scenery, Gomera is as worthy of discovery now as it was then.
