The Island of La Gomera
by

 These days is quite difficult to find somewhere not too far from home that isn’t teaming with tourists.

If you are looking for that something different but still adventurous with a bit of luxury thrown in then this is it!

Hotel Jardin Tecina on the Island of La Gomera.

La Gomera is an Island 30 miles off the coast of Tenerife with a forest in the heart creating a lush and unique landscape.

The villa type rooms of Jardin Tecina are set among a sprawling, immaculate garden and only 2 stories high with a sea view from every room.

There are pools and plenty of things to do including an 18 hole golf course which overlooks The Atlantic, the village of San Sebastian is a mere 10 minute walk away where you will find some lovely local establishments.

Its a good idea to hire a car to make the most of the island and a visit to the Garajonay National Park is a must which is a world heritage site.

You can listen out for the bizarre local language called Silbo which is a whistling language which is still taught in schools!

Bananas provided the main industry until tourism hit, but they are still important and are used widely in Gomeran cuisine.

The weather is typically warm all year round with temperatures rarely dropping below 18 degrees.
