San Sebastián de la Gomera – the largest village with big-city flair

Playa de la Cueva
»Playa de la Cueva
Although the lively small capital does not count more than about 6000 inhabitants, you will notice an appreciable difference between this place and the rest of the island: Two city beaches with lava sand, cosy cafés under Indian laurels, and fine restaurants invite you to a relaxing vacation, where the sun shines 340 days a year with constantly high temperatures.

Hermigua – a hikers' paradise and for fans of secluded beaches

Vallehermoso – the authentic Gomera

Roque Cano
»Roque Cano
Vallehermoso, the "beautiful valley", is the ideal place for those seeking quiet and relaxation. The valley is treated as an insider tip for hikers, active and nature loving visitors will be amazed of the beautiful trails. Impressive mountains, fairy woods and a rough coast are the natural barriers of Vallehermoso. The guard and symbol of Vallehermoso is Roque Cano, a huge rock rising above the village, that has been (a very long time ago) La Gomera's first volcano.

The Pico del Teide on Tenerife is the highest mountain of spain and seems to be within reach from here, but fortunately Tenerife's hectic pace is far, far away.

The years left Vallehermoso without a trace. The times, when agriculture was a big profit for this valley are long gone. But little supermarkets, restaurants, banks and even a cybercafé assure the visitor to be in 21st century. The villagers, considering such modernity, stay calm: Still there's time enough for having a chinwag and the strangers are warmly welcome for a chat.

Agulo – a picture perfect village

Embalse de la Palmita
»Embalse de la Palmita
Midway between Hermigua and Vallehermoso there lies, nestled down in the rocky slopes with a beautiful view at the sea, the idyllic picure-book village Agulo from the 17th century. Tenerife's volcano "Pico del Teide" is looming at the horizon out of the omnipresent expansive blue surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

National Park Garajonay – the mystical forest

The green soul of La Gomera is waiting for the hiker: The National Park Garajonay is for sure a fairy forest, and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1986. Moss-covered gnarled trees are combing humidity out of the trade winds. Lichen, moss and ferns are covering the soft ground and trunks.

Valle Gran Rey – the Valley of the Great King

Between Valle Gran Rey's steep rock walls lies an enthralling, farmed landscape. This breathtaking scenery delights the eye, with its terraces of crops, date palms, fruit trees and flowers stretching across the slopes on both sides of the serpentine road leading down to the coast.
