La Gomera is the smallest of the seven Canary Islands. The island can be described as a rugged mountain island with a fantastic coastline. La Gomera has few beaches, but the cliffs that open into the sea offer an unprecedented sight. This lack of beaches has ensured that the island is not yet completely overrun by tourists, so you can really enjoy the most beautiful nature undisturbed here.
And beautiful nature is there. It is not for nothing that the Parque Nacional de Garajonay, which covers around 10 percent of the island, is situated in the middle of the island (and around the mountain El Alto Garajonay, with 1,487 meters the highest of the island). The park was put on the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1986 and is one of the four national parks of the Canary Islands. The other interior is also beautiful: covered with deep and often green valleys and canyons you can enjoy a fantastic walk here. The authentic landscape is dominated in the north and west of the island by a terraced landscape, where potatoes, maize, bananas, tomatoes, grapes and dates are grown.
