Just peace & quiet in harmony with nature and all the goodness she has to offer.
La Gomera remains unspoilt (at the moment) by tourism.
It has a quiet rugged beauty. Sub tropical climate creates an abundance of plants, trees & fruits.
The roads which snake up & down the mountains & valleys remain quiet, if not a trifle hair raising.
It is a walkers paradise - stroll out and listen to the bird song - take in the excellent lush scenery and admire natures miracle in transforming volcanic rock into a botanical paradise.
All forms of vegetation come alive at the Garajonay National Park visitors centre.
Plants from the South America's & other sub tropical places flourish in the year round warm temperatures.
Interestingly, common garden plants are seen too, but much larger than I can grow at home.
Truely a gardener's paradise!
- Pros:Simply beauty - Simply life - A refreshing place
- Cons:A need for a car & my missing hiking boots.
- In a nutshell:Gardener's Paradise - Walker's Dream
The panoramic views from the top look off are spectacular. The height can be so great it gives you a dizzy feeling. more travel advice
Would need a gardener's hand book to identify the many and varied flowers showing great beauty on this island. more travel advice
