On a day out recently, I went to the island of La Gomera to explore for the day. You have to get a ferry there from Tenerife but it’s only 40 minutes away and it’s really worth it. I was on a day out where I was taken to lots of different places all around the island so we could explore and see what the island had to offer. I only had my phone with me as I’m waiting on my Canon to arrive from the UK but I took some pictures of my time there and had some really stunning views of Tenerife to share.
This picture was taken from the restaurant where we had lunch and it was so stunning, it even had a glass bottom where you could walk out and see stunning views of the Island of Tenerife. You also get to see Mount Teide just coming out the clouds, it looks really mystical!
All my pictures are of the sunning views really but the island itself can be explored in a day. It’s a tiny island compared to the other canary island and Isla de la Gomera, is known for being relatively untouched by tourism. Lots of people who live there, work there and some even commute to Tenerife by the water ferry so they can work on another island. I’d love to live on a quiet canarian island like this one!
If you are looking to do something different and are near Tenerife I would really recommend going to La Gomera for a day, there is so much to see and do and I’m hoping to head back soon for longer as I want to see more!
All my photo’s from La Gomera are edited using the presets from Lisa Homsy, I love them as they’re so easy to use and make my pictures look completely differently with just a few changes. Find out about her presets here!
Have you ever been to Isla de La Gomera or visited any Canary Islands?
