The Park also contains a history of giants; the “Roques” which emerged from the depths of the earth with their imposing vertical heights set the stage for the richest stories in a child’s imagination. In the heart of the Park, there are viewpoints to observe them in all their magnitude, such as the Los Roques viewpoint, or if you visit Vallehermoso, you can see the Roque Cano. All of these are a great example for explaining the volcanic origin of the Island, feeding the imagination of children with the stories of these ancient giants.
Following our proposal, we move on to water. The beaches of La Gomera are ideal for holidays with children, away from the crowds; with quiet natural pools and beaches for all tastes. Some of them also have stories to teach to children, from the “Charco del Conde” and the “Charco de la Condesa” (natural pools) in Valle Gran Rey, or the beaches of San Sebastián de La Gomera that are associated with the history of Christopher Columbus. We stop at the “Charco del Conde”, a declared site of scientific interest because of its enormous biodiversity, and with just some glasses and a snorkel, you can appreciate the amount of life it contains; under a stone, in the sand or swimming quietly. All species that coexist in that area are within reach of a curious visitor’s gaze.
The charming La Gomera, because it is a charming island, because it is loved from the moment it is first seen, and because adventures can be experienced that connect both young and old to the untouched nature that characterises it.
