Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the seven Canary Islands with 43 percent of the total population of the Canary Islands, and is also the most populous island of Spain.
Tenerife is also the most visited island in the Canary island group, welcoming over ten million visitors per year with its lovely weather, beautiful coastlines, spectacular beaches, lush forests, mountains, volcanoes, as well as two world heritage sites, one National Park, and 42 natural protected spaces.
The weather is one of the main reasons for the influx of visitors to Tenerife’s shores with almost guaranteed sunshine year round. As a result, this family friendly island is consistently one of Europe’s top winter sun destinations.
Though the island has 2 airports, inter island travel is best by ferry. As the largest island in the group, Tenerife acts as a hub for many of the other Canary Islands with frequent crossings offered by Spain’s best known ferry operators. There are also regular crossings connecting Tenerife to the mainland for those who enjoy spending their travel time at sea.
The small, circular island of La Gomera nestles between Tenerife, El Hierro and La Palma in the Spanish Canary Islands.
Characteristic of all the Canaries, La Gomera is volcanic in origin, defined by steep mountains and deep ravines. As you would expect, then, the island has some truly excellent viewpoints and an enormous network of hiking trails, all overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage listed Garajonay National Park and laurel rainforests.
La Gomera is also noted as Christopher Columbus’ last port of call before discovering America. Consequently, there are some intriguing monuments and buildings where, according to folklore, he prayed and lived.
As a tightknit group of islands, travelling by ferry is a convenient way of getting around the Canaries. In terms of reaching La Gomera, it has the popular holiday spot of Tenerife immediately to the east and La Palma to the northwest, so it’s within easy reach from these islands, with ferries docking in San Sebastian.
