Rural charm in a heavenly setting
La Gomera is a short boat ride from Tenerife and yet a world away. Dramatic valleys, plunging valleys with a centre dominated by the UNESCO credited Garayonay National Park provide wonderful views and unique flora and fauna.
Unlike neighbouring Tenerife, La Gomera has only been mildly touched by tourism and continues to honour the traditional way of life.
The Parador de la Gomera stands on a cliff top some 250 feet above the little town of San Sebastian, the island’s ‘capital’, with views over the sea to Tenerife and set in very pretty and extensive gardens - ideal for those who seek style and good service. The hotel has just 60 neat and elegant rooms, a charming restaurant and pool overlooking the sea.
We like: The interiors filled with marine references and nautical instruments from the time Columbus left this island for America.
Best for: Those looking for a relaxing break and a desire to explore some interesting natural areas.
