La Gomera Vacations & Travel Packages!
Located in the Atlantic Ocean, La Gomera is the second smallest island of Spain’s Canary Islands. It often fascinates visitors with its fortress like façade, sunny beaches, green rainforests, a walkable terrain and a mountainous backdrop. This island is an obvious choice for yachting and hiking enthusiasts, and its picture-perfect beauty provides a romantic escapade to all those jaded with the customary Spanish attractions. If you’re looking for more reasons, you should come here to taste its firebrand alcoholic servings, Parra and Gomeron. If you think coffee gets you up and rolling, the unavoidable Leche y Leche is perhaps the most tantalizing form of Espresso coffee available across the Atlantic.

Los Organos Cliff
Los Organos Cliff is perhaps the most enigmatic of all tourist attractions in La Gomera because its emphatic view can be afforded only from the ocean to the north of the island. Usually accessible through weekly boat tours, it derives its name from the rocks that were cut and shaped by water and volcanic lava to look like church organ tubes.
