La Gomera is one of the most beautiful

of the Canary Islands. With its extensive network of trails, it allows for the combination of environmental conservation with the practice of numerous dynamic sports. This makes it a very attractive destination for a more demanding nature and wellness tourism.

Despite being the second smallest of the Canary Islands, La Gomera is a small but rich ecological treasure. Black sand beaches interspersed with cliffs and, in its interior, lush forests of prehistoric vegetation. The Garajonay National Park has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

It is no coincidence that this island has often been dubbed «The Magical Island». A wild coast with tiny but fascinating beaches, a true paradise for nature lovers.

La Gomera also harbors many peculiarities, the most famous of which is the whistle language. Its inhabitants have communicated in this way for centuries due to the impermeable reliefs. In this way, it was possible to send simple messages from one side of the ravines to the other, overcoming distances and terrain difficulties.

The beach of San Sebastián, located near the historic port of the capital, San Sebastián de La Gomera, is one of the best on the island. With just over half a kilometer in length, 600 meters long and an average width of about 55 meters, it has a mix of black sand and gravel. Others include Avalos, located north of San Sebastián de la Gomera, which combines black sand and gravel.

The beach of Calabrito is accessible by boat from the port of San Sebastián or through a steep path. It is 450 meters long and 40 meters wide, with black sand and pebbles, and always has calm waters.

The beaches of Tapahuga, El Medio, and Chinguarime are three consecutive beaches located between San Sebastián and the municipality of Alajeró.

During your vacation in La Gomera, you should not forget about the beach of Santiago, located in Alajeró, the largest beach on La Gomera, with almost half a kilometer in length and an average width of 30 meters. It has smooth gravel and stones, and moderate waves despite being located in a port area.

Santa Catalina is the main beach in Hermigua, with 850 meters in length and 35 meters in width, with pebbles alternating with medium-grain black sand. It is located in a rural area, between terrace crops, surrounded by a green paradise. Other beaches include Playa del Inglés, Arguamul, and Vallehermoso.
