La Gomera is the only non-volcanic island of the Canary Islands. Popular destination for a day trip from Tenerife. Almost all tourists come on the ferry to San Sebastián de La Gomera and then move up to the Garajonay National Park.

There is nothing special in the capital of the island, except the promenade.

We visited the island with an overnight stay in Valle Gran Rey. This town is located at the other side of the island, so in the first day we drove over the whole island on one road, and the next day - on the other. There are several apartment-hotels there, in one we stopped (booking.com).

If you have time, you should come here at least for two nights. Quiet, calm, beautiful and few tourists.
