Garajonay National Park

A misty rain forest full of mystery and romance: great for hiking.

Reviewed By KentA704 - Gothenburg, Sweden

Ive been to alot of places on the canaries. And when it comes to walking outdoors, nothing beats Garajonay national park.
The changing of the climate. The shifts in the nature. The low traffic of tourists. Everything is just perfect.
Do not miss this if you are on La Gomera. If you are residing in playa las americas on Teneriffe, take a day trip!

Cafe - Bar - Bethermann

Reviewed By VoceDelVerboPartire - San Leo, Italy

In questo bar carinissimo, ci siamo fermati per una veloce pausa pranzo, il nostro primo giorno a La Gomera. Noi abbiamo preso solo dei panini, ma c'era possibilità di gustare anche tapas preparate al momento, torte salate e dolci. Devo dire che le bagette che abbiamo ordinato erano freschissime, con formaggio e salumi molto buoni. Prezzi piu' che onesti.
Proprietari simpatici e gentili, abbiamo apprezzato anche il signore che con noi ha parlato in italiano.
Peccato non abbiano riaperto nei giorni successivi, ci saremmo fermati a fare altri panini da portare via. Che ci crediate o meno, conviene molto di piu' che comperare l'occorrente in supermercati o botteghe.

Reviewed By SylvieFrancois444 - Ontario Canada

It is the mother church of the town of San Sebastián de la Gomera and of the whole island. It is located in the heart of the old town. The riches of the patrimony that keeps behind its walls includes the coffered Mudejar, Renaissance tables and diverse images and pictorial works.

Valle de Hermigua

Reviewed By Nikki245 - Enniskillen, United Kingdom

Fabulous place to get out and explore. Peace and quiet is what struck me the most about this place had a kind of serenity that was unexpected. Dramic views of the valley right down to the coast and over to Tenerife where Mount Teide dominates the skyline.

Amazing local tours of La Gomera and the Garajonay national park. We had an amazing full day of tour around the national park and nature trails. The tour guide Enekoiz is friendly, smart and a ton of fun. Feel like a local and get off the beaten path to see the best sites. Highly recommended if you go to La Gomera and stay anywhere near Valle Hermoso.

Playa de Valle Hermoso

Reviewed By greenpandatracks - Berlin, Germany

The waves at the beach are quite ruff and the tide strong but you can chill at the saltwater pool and enjoy the view. There are two pools one for toddlers and one for adults and families.
At the restaurant you can order tasty local dishes. It's far from being overpriced.
It's also the start for walking tours to the playa de la sepultura for example.
You can see the old shipping station and formerly theme park, which is closed now because of the destroyed road.
Beware at Monday the restaurant and the pools are closed.

Playa La Caleta

Reviewed By Alistair83 - Guildford, United Kingdom

We took a very nice (if slightly strenuous) short hike over from Hermigua. We had heard that the beach bar had closed down since February, which unfortunately proved to be the case. We asked some crane workers who were around if it was due to re-open - they said "maybe in summer".
It was a lovely sunny day, not particularly windy, but the sea wasn't swimmable due to the currents and large waves. I'm not really clear how often it is actually possible to swim, which is a shame as it would be lovely to cool off after the walk!

Ermita Lourdes

Reviewed By amdgriggs - Sheffield, United Kingdom

This is a lovely spot with some historical interest, midway along the classic hike (up or down) between Hermigua and Contadero on the shoulder of Alto Garajonay. The Ermita itself is small and attractive, sitting in a sunny clearing in the laurel woods, with half a dozen wooden picnic tables and benches on the shady Terrace just below it in the woods. Deservedly popular and the one obvious place to stop (other than a couple of small miradors) during a 4-5 hour hike up or down through the laurel forest, and also a little destination of its own for those doing just a short walk through the woods up from El Cedro and the hikers bar (Bar La Vista) there.
