Why visit Isla de la Gomera

La Gomera is one of the smallest islands in the Canary Archipelago, but daytrips from Tenerife are always worth making given both the short distance between them and the tourist opportunities featured by La Gomera. First of all, La Gomera is a heavily forested island, and the somewhat irregular topography, with steep sections and mild coastal segments make it a real challenge for adventure seekers. The Garajonay National Park is the main highlight of La Gomera, but the island is full of Canarian character and is worth exploring in all its hidden opportunities.

How to get from Tenerife to La Gomera

By sea

The boats operated by Fred. Olsen leave from Los Cristianos, in south Tenerife, and haul ashore at either Playa Santiago or Valle Gran Rey. Los Cristianos is used by Naviera Armas too as point of departure, but their boats haul ashore at San Sebastian de la Gomera, the capital of the island.

By air

Flights are also an option for tourists who want to hop from Tenerife to La Gomera. They can leave from either Los Rodeos or Reina Sofia and land at Aeropuerto de La Gomera by resorting to the services provided by Binter.
