La Gomera island has plenty of attractions for everyone. Heavenly beaches, numerous and varied trails and beautiful viewpoints. Its 17 protected natural areas make this island a unique enclave to enjoy a well-deserved holiday.
And it is precisely this natural wealth that must be cared for and maintained, which is the reason why La Gomera has joined the World Biological Corridor, a project created by the International Committee to create synergies with other places on the planet, aimed at defending, researching and conserving the environment, nature and the oceans. A fact that contributes to progress in protection measures and also to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
La Gomera belongs to the recently created Green and Blue Belt, which brings together members from different regions, and promotes several measures and policies addressing very important and topical issues for the ecosystem ranging from energy to water resources. Thus, committing once again to the island’s sustainability, to its environment and all the species that inhabit it.
With this initiative, La Gomera has joined other international projects and proposals such as the World Cetacean Alliance, which recognises La Gomera as the only European area considered Whale Heritage and responsible tourist destination of excellence for the sighting of this species. Furthermore, Whale Heritage Sites is a globally recognised programme that identifies tourist destinations where measures are implemented to enjoy responsible and sustainable whale and dolphin watching, which includes our island.
Hotel Jardín Tecina is very happy with this membership as it represents a great step forward in the island's development, since it will investigate and share information that will help to recover and restore damaged land and unprotected species. We are proud to live in a place that is committed to a sustainable future.
And you, do you want to join sustainability?
