Undeveloped, unspoilt, beautiful island just 35-60 minutes by ferry (it depends which ferry you take) from Tenerife. Ideal for walkers.
Contrast between lush forests around the summit and in the National Park with dry vegetation on the flanks of the island. Of real interest to botanists for its variety of plant life and number of endemic species. Good climate all year round, especially in the south.
La Gomera is still one of two Canary Islands without direct tourist flights from mainland Europe, the other being El Hierro.
