La Gomera gives you the opportunity to marvel at the impressive meteor shower that decorates its night skies. The low light pollution makes it possible to clearly observe the immense universe.

If you are looking for the best places to enjoy this celestial show, you have come to the right destination. We tell you about the key areas of the island where you can enjoy the blanket of stars of La Gomera.


Upper part of the Garajonay National Park

The Garajonay National Park, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is an exceptional place for stargazing in La Gomera, and even more so if you climb to the highest peak, some 1,487 metres above sea level.

It is accessed via a series of short, low-difficulty trails, which makes it even more accessible at night.

Its dense laurel forests create a magical and enigmatic setting that is illuminated by the falling of shooting stars.


Vallehermoso Beach

Vallehermoso Beach, with its unique sand and crystal-clear waters, is an idyllic place to enjoy an evening of stargazing. Away from the city lights, this beach offers a dark and clear sky that allows a clear view of the stars and constellations. What better way to end a day in La Gomera than gazing at the universe from the coast?


Viewpoints on the island

Situated on the boundaries of the Garajonay National Park is the Mirador de los Roques viewpoint. In this remote place, far from civilisation, light pollution is practically non-existent. From here, you can contemplate the majestic silhouette of Roque de Agando, an emblematic scene for night photography enthusiasts.

The Mirador del Morro de Agando viewpoint, very near the Roque de Agando, is a platform at the top of a hill that surrounds the Natural Monument of Los Roques. It is accessed via a low-difficulty path and shows a different perspective to the previous viewpoint.

Another viewpoint in Valle Gran Rey, specifically in the area of Arure, is the Mirador del Santo, a privileged point for astronomic photography. This viewpoint provides an unobstructed view of the starry sky, thanks to the low light pollution that surrounds it.


La Gomera has a variety of magical places to observe meteor showers and the island's blanket of stars. From panoramic viewpoints to secluded beaches, every corner of this Canary Island will give you the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable celestial experience.
