Deep ravines and black sand beaches.
At a distance of about 30 kilometers of the southwest coast of the island of Tenerife is the Canary Island of La Gomera, with an area of 370 km2 it is one of the smallest of the Canary Islands. La Gomera has about 20,000 residents, the “Gomeros”, which live mainly from agriculture but also from tourism. La Gomera became famous by Christopher Columbus, who made his last stop here before discovering America. Climatically La Gomera hardly differs from the neighboring island of Tenerife. The north is constantly supplied by the trade winds with moist air and is therefore fabricated deep green and the south is slightly drier.
The Real Estate market on La Gomera is very limited. Apartments and holiday apartments can be found in the capital city of San Sebastian but, above all, in Valle Gran Rey, the tourist center of the island. Villas and houses are often offered in exclusive locations in San Sebastian, Valle Gran Rey or on golf courses such as Playa Santiago. A fairly wide range is on the island of villas and old Canarian houses are offered practically all over the island including some mountain villages. Real estate agents are mainly in Valle Gran Rey, which offers their clients apartments and houses in different languages for rent and for sale.
Although there is an airport in La Gomera is the most popular means of transport the ferry which departs from Los Cristianos on Tenerife from. The easy access to the southern airport Reina Sofia and the numerous and cheap ferries make an easy and comfortable journey possible.
If you are looking for peace and a quiet place, away from mass tourism and a healthy natural environment, then La Gomera is certainly a good choice. Here you can enjoy every day the spectacular sunsets, miles of hiking trails, enjoy the typical Canarian cuisine and lots of nice people. All in all a beautiful Canarian island in the Atlantic Ocean, on which the world is still in order.
As the neighboring islands of Tenerife, La Palma and El Hierro, La Gomera has different climate zones that lead depending on the altitude of barren countryside to the subtropical rain forest in the higher elevations.
