The winter season is here, and many of us are looking for places to go on holiday. There are so many choices when it comes to holiday destinations, but not all of us are ready to travel halfway around the world to South East Asia to enjoy tropical weather and escape the cold winter. You could, however, consider a Holiday on La Gomera which is a beautiful and unspoiled island which is part of the Canary Islands and have been a popular destination for many European holidaymakers.
Why go to La Gomera
Unlike many destinations, this island is relatively untouched and not saturated with partygoers and stereotype tourist attractions. It has so many beautiful places that you will find breathtaking if you put in the effort to reach them by foot. SO many secret coves are just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
Get away from the crowds and busy streets
Unlike the bigger island in this area, on La Gomera, you will find a calm and peaceful atmosphere. That does not mean that you have to be without a drink. You will find some nice bars and pubs in the main area where the hotels are located. The place has a rustic look which will be a total contrast to many others that are developed.
It is about a sixty-minute ferry ride to the island, and once you step foot on it, you will be happy that you made a choice. You can finally get the rest and relaxation a holiday is supposed to give you. One of the main pastimes on the island is hiking as it is only a 146 square miles in area. You will have a great time seeing the beautiful sceneries as it is a mountainous island with great views.
The island has some great clean beaches that are not packed with tourists like the grand canary island. You will experience an entirely different holiday when you spend a few days here. You will not have the stress of dealing with traffic and other tourists.
Think of having an excellent lamb stew cooked in wine and some fresh tomatoes and avocados which sitting on the porch of your apartment just enjoying the breeze and subtropical weather. This is what you can expect when you visit this island for your next holiday. If you make plans early, you can book a nice place to stay and you are sure to have some fond memories when you go back home.
