Peaceful, quiet, wild and beautiful. Known as the “Magic Island”, La Gomera is the second smallest island of the Canaries and one of its most valuable ecological treasures. Declared a World Biosphere Reserve in 2011 thanks to the pristine nature of its marine and terrestrial ecosystems, it offers a breath-taking landscape of constrasts – from kind, palm valleys to dramatic canyons; from rugged coastlines to warm, black-sand beaches; from arid plains to fascinating forests, crammed with vegetation.
Its surrounding waters are considered one the most important hotspots of cetaceans in Europe, hosting 22 different species, from bottlenose dolphins to pilot whales, blue whales, humpback whales or killer whales.
The sea bed is equally rich, providing a rich diversity of landscapes and sea life for the enjoyment of snorkelers and divers alike.
