La Gomera, our neighbouring island

La Gomera, our neighbouring island

The island of La Gomera, is only about 39 kilometres from Tenerife and there are several daily ferries that connect the two islands, which last approx. 35 minutes. In a day you can explore this island and visit the most important points that makes it unique within the archipelago.

The port is located in the capital, San Sebastián de La Gomera. The old town has more than five hundred years of history, with important moments like the conquest or the visit of Cristóbal Colón. Some of the monuments not to be missed are: the tower of Colon, the Church of “Asunción”, the Casa de Colón or the Torre del Conde. It also has a black sand beach.

The Garajonay National Park is located in the central area of the island, and reaches a height of 1500 meters. It is UNESCO World Heritage since 1986 for its richness in flora and fauna. Here you can find one of the most emblematic forests in the Canary Islands, a “laurisilva” forest which is a living fossil of the tertiary age. We recommend a walk through the mountains; you will feel like in an enchanted forest.

Be amazed by the landscape of Valle Gran Rey, is a village located in one of the largest ravines of the island with abundant vegetation. In the mouth is a fishing port and “Playa del Inglés”, a black sand beach.

Other places of interest are: Vallehermoso, Hermigua and the nature reserve of Benchijigua. A trip by sea to the organs of La Gomera is also highly recommended.

Jardines de Nivaria and Colon Guanahani, in Costa Adeje, are located just 10 minutes away from the port of Los Cristianos, where you can catch the boat to the island of La Gomera. Roca Nivaria GH is just 20 minutes away. At the reception of all three hotels of Adrian Hoteles you can book organised excursions to visit our neighbour island.
