La Gomera

La Gomera

In January 2013 we finally made the trip to La Gomera. This is the closest island to Tenerife and can be reached via the fast-ferry from Los Cristianos in under an hour. With perfect weather conditions, we took the Tiger on the 9.00am crossing returning at 5.30pm the same day. This gave us just enough time to see most areas, although this beautiful island really deserves a lot more time to fully explore. La Gomera has a completely different feel to Tenerife, being older in geological terms, and having more vegetation provides a lush green landscape. Mount Teide still dominates the skyline from across the sea and provides a fabulous backdrop on a clear day.
