Holidays to La Gomera
A small volcanic island off Tenerife, La Gomera is known for its rugged remoteness and stunning, varied landscapes. The interior is lush, green and prehistoric looking, with dramatic ravines that open out onto black sand beaches. The laidback capital of San Sebastian sits on the eastern coast, while the most popular tourist spot is around the beautiful village of Valle Gran Rey, with its stylish, clean seafront and surrounding beaches.
