It took us 4 hours to reach the Canary Islands by plane. It was winter back home but in the Canaries the temperature was about 20 degrees. This is extremely perfect for someone like me who wants to escape the bitter cold of winter. However, my reason to visit La Gomera is to enjoy some form of isolated relaxation after the stress back home. I have previously booked La Gomera Accommodation online for one of the private apartments that dotted the island.
Because, there are not direct flights to the island, we travelled across the sea from Tenerife by ferry. The trip was heaven with the stunning coastal scenery. There are no large hotels in La Gomera and so far it has been spared from travel packages. However, it is suggested to book La Gomera Accommodation early particularly during peak seasons because tourists are now discovering the beauty of the island.
In the Canaries, I was able to experience the beauty of sailing. I was actually planning to try something different but when I sampled my first taste of true sailing, I knew that that is was an experience I would love to try again with my friends back home. With luck I will be able to take a short sailing course and learn about the aspects of a boat and how sailing is related to different elements in the environment.
In La Gomera, the beaches are spectacular without the mass population of tourists common in most beaches. I am amazed at its isolation and the rugged coast of the island. Some of the island’s beaches can be reached by foot from my apartment. The hike is definitely worth the efforts because of the peacefulness of the waters and the wonderful scenery.
My holiday in La Gomera was also a culinary delight with the freshly caught fish grilled over hot charcoal. There are restaurants and cafes conveniently located near beach and I experienced a leisurely dinner while watching the sunset. Daylight in the Canaries is about 11 hours which means having enough time to soak up the coastal scenery. There is a lot of leisure pursuits available whether in the mountains or in the waters.
