Vallehermoso stands out for its charming historic quarter, one of the most beautiful in La Gomera, which is reason enough to explore this municipality. We recommend starting your walk from the Plaza de la Constitución square and going through the neighbourhoods of Triana and Vegeta, inspired by those of Gran Canaria, with typical Canarian houses, until you reach the imposing Church of San Juan Bautista. Another highlight is the hamlet of Tamargada, surrounded by palm groves and picturesque landscapes, where you will find the impressive Ermita de la Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre. Food lovers should try the almogrote, a pâté made with red mojo sauce and local cheese, typical of the area. You can also visit other hamlets such as Epina, El Cercado and Arguamul, the latter known for a Buddha abandoned on the road because of its weight, which has become a local curiosity. The area is also home to La Encantadora Dam, a reservoir used for irrigation, as well as the Castillo del Mar and the Botanical Gardens of Vallehermoso, which are well worth a visit.


Hermigua offers a unique opportunity to explore the typical cultivated hillsides of La Gomera and, with luck, hear the famous silbo gomero, an outstanding experience on the island. Among its points of interest are the church and convent of Santo Domingo, the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación and the Pescante de Hermigua, the island's old port which was in operation for 42 years and is now abandoned, but remains one of the most emblematic places to photograph on La Gomera. In addition, from Hermigua you can visit the Ethnographic Park of La Gomera Los Telares to learn about the island's traditions.

Chorros de Epina

The Chorros de Epina are an unmissable visit in La Gomera, known for the waterfalls and pools of water that form along the Epina ravine, creating a mysterious atmosphere that captivates visitors. To get there, from the village of the same name you can take a small, easy trail that starts at the Chorros de Epina restaurant. After approximately 15 minutes of descent, you will reach the Hermitage of San Isidro Labrador, and a little further on you will find the seven jets of Epina. This place is surrounded by local legends and is popular with those seeking love or healing properties. According to the legends, clear and calm water promises happiness in love, while murky water augurs misfortune. Drinking from odd or even streams is also said to have healing properties, depending on gender, and the seventh stream is especially beneficial for women wishing to become pregnant, a practice also performed by the island's ancient witches. These stories add a special touch to a visit to this beautiful corner of La Gomera.

Parque Nacional de Garajonay

Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this 40-square-kilometre park stands out for its unique biodiversity, with numerous endemic species of flora and fauna. It is a must-see destination on the island, especially for hiking enthusiasts, with a network of trails leading to strategic viewpoints such as the Mirador de la Degollada de Peraza, which offers breathtaking panoramic views.

In addition to its ecological value, Garajonay is home to cultural sites such as Roque Blanco, a rock formation of archaeological importance. A curiosity about the park's name is that it is attributed to an aboriginal legend, although it is also believed to simply mean "high rock" in the Guanche language.

El Cedro

One of the main attractions of La Gomera and an essential activity is a visit to the Cedar Forest, located in the Garajonay National Park, recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This natural treasure covers an extensive area of laurel forest, a type of subtropical rainforest unique to the Canary Islands archipelago, dominated by the Canary Island cedar. The ancient forest creates a magical environment with its dense mist and a variety of plants such as ferns, lichens and mosses, contributing to the formation of a unique ecosystem. There are several routes to explore the forest, with the 3 km circular route from the Visitor Centre being the most popular and accessible. Due to the frequent presence of fog, it is advisable to wear suitable footwear and warm clothing. It is advisable to consult the official website for detailed information on the trails, their characteristics and difficulty.

Roque de Agando

Roque de Agando is an impressive rock formation that rises 1,250 metres above sea level, standing out as one of the most emblematic geological points of La Gomera. In addition to its beauty, it offers impressive panoramic views of the surrounding area, including the Garajonay National Park and the extensive laurel forests that characterise the island. This place also has a cultural and spiritual value for the inhabitants of La Gomera, who have associated it with local legends and rituals, such as the belief that the rock and those around it are petrified lovers, destined to be reunited by erosion. From here there are several trails that allow you to explore the island's beautiful scenery. For those without a car, an excellent option for visiting this place and other points of interest on La Gomera is to book a tour of the island's interior.

Los Órganos

The Los Órganos Natural Monument, located on the north coast of La Gomera, is an impressive geological wonder that captivates with its imposing rock formations. These formations stand out for their vertical ravines that plunge into the Atlantic, creating a unique landscape on the island. Like other places in the world such as Iceland, this cliff is characterised by its basalt columns that resemble organic tubes, hence its name. The Organs were formed through geological processes, such as the slow solidification of lava, creating a series of hexagonal pillars that extend from the cliffs towards the ocean, offering a spectacular view. The natural monument can be accessed via trails that cross the cliffs, providing breathtaking panoramic views of both La Gomera and Tenerife.

Mirador de Abrante

The Abrante viewpoint is a must-visit in La Gomera to enjoy spectacular views. Built in 2014 on the cliff of Agulo, this viewpoint has a 7-metre long glass walkway that rises some 200 metres above the village of the same name. Integrated within the restaurant of the same name, the viewpoint offers the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable experience, whether eating in the restaurant or simply having a coffee while contemplating the breathtaking scenery of La Gomera. On clear days, the silhouette of El Teide and the island of Tenerife can be seen from this viewpoint, adding an extra touch to the experience. Although admission is free, the full gastronomic experience adds special value to the visit.

The island is characterised by its impressive mountains, ravines and cliffs, making it a paradise for lovers of panoramic views and nature. Other outstanding viewpoints are the Tagaragunche viewpoint, the Degollada viewpoint, the Asomadita viewpoint, the Igualero viewpoint with its monument to the silbo canario, and the El Sombrero and Las Trincheras viewpoints.
