Smallest and oldest of the 7 Canary Islands, La Gomera is also the tip of an extinct volcano: circular and a mere 15 miles across. The central peak is only 4,879 feet high and usually shrouded in mist creating a microclimate ideal for the island's unique bay laurel forest, a protected World Heritage Site forming the Garajonay National Park. The park is threaded with well-marked walking trails and is a hiker's delight. Steep-sided valleys descend from the cool and damp of the peak to the warm equable climate enjoyed on the coast where the main villages and resorts are situated. Like Tenerife, the north is verdant while the south is arid. The major activity for the small native population of 17,000 is still agriculture with cochineal, bananas and tomatoes the major produce. Tourism is very undeveloped as yet but accounts for an increasing part of the island's economy.
Situated on the seafront a few minutes walk from the centre of Playa de Santiago which has a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants.
From previous experience it is best to try and get an early morning flight to Tenerife South to arrive by midday. This will then give you enough time to catch one of the afternoon ferries from Los Cristianos to La Gomera. Ferry times can vary according to the season, so please check with the ferry companies to confirm departure and arrival times so that we can meet you at the apartments.
