La Gomera is one of the smallest of the Canary Islands archipelago, however, there are many of magnificent beaches with crystal clear water perfect to relax, take a bath or just walk and admire the beauty and tranquillity that the island offers.
The island is full of magnificent landscapes from north to south where you will definitely wish to spend some time. It could be a challenging task to decide between what to do or what to see in only one-day trip, that’s why we recommend planning your holiday so you can use the most of your time to discover all the hidden treasures of La Gomera
La Gomera has beautiful and spectacular corners that are difficult to describe in just a few lines, that’s why this time we will focus on La Caleta Beach.
This beach is located in the north part of the island, in the municipality of Hermigua, a rural town where banana plantations and wine production are the primary economic activities. La Caleta is known as the best beach on the north of the island and therefore, one of the most beautiful.
It has a privileged location with views to the coast and to the Mount Teide, besides being presided by a rock formation. In addition to the extraordinary views, the beach gives the sensation of inner calmness, tranquility, and peace thanks to the open nature space.
Whether you are looking for a place to relax, unwind, read your favourite book surrounded by nature, or just for a walk to feel the black sand of volcanic rock between your toes, La Caleta beach is the best set to disconnect. A place just to relax your mind away from the city where the only sound you will hear is the waves crashing on the beach and the wind blowing.
Besides being calm and practically an idyllic location, it is also an excellent beach if you are traveling with children to the Canary Islands. The weather of La Gomera and especially the weather of La Caleta beach, make this place ideally for the little ones. The water generally remains calm, but be careful with the ocean currents as can carry a swimmer out to the open water.
La Caleta beach has everything you need to enjoy with the whole family, with all the comforts and amenities. And if you want to experience the tasty Canarian cuisine, treat your loved ones to a pleasant meal under the shade of a pergola at the wooden tables.
Another charm you cannot miss if you are visiting La Caleta beach, is the hermitage of St. John, at the end of this pretty beach. Locals and visitors celebrate a festival to honour St. John the Evangelist in the hermitage situated on the beach every year. At this festival, you will dance to the beat of the drums and chacaras.
If you are organizing your trip and trying to decide what to do in La Gomera, a visit to La Caleta Beach is definitely a great plan. Looking at Mount Teide with its almost four thousand meters is a truly unforgettable experience. You can also admire the whole island of Tenerife if the day is clear enough. The 40 kilometres between La Gomera and Tenerife will never seem so reachable.
