La Gomera is known for its world-class hiking with several different bio spheres. The old growth laurisilva, or laurel rain forest, on top of the island is the only remaining such forest in Europe, which was once covered by it. Countless trails criss-cross the island, offering spectacular views.
Valle Gran Rey, located on the southwest coast, boasts the best climate in the world (if you like mild temperatures around the year). It is mostly in the lee of the trade winds which blow from the northeast bringing fog and clouds to the north part of La Gomera and provides humidity for the laurisilva forest.
La Playa is a small community in Valle Gran Rey. Everything is within less than five minutes walking distance. There are several restaurants, grocery stores, a German Bakery, an Ice Cream Shop and lots of small boutiques.
A 20 minutes beautiful walk along the shore takes you to La Puntilla, Borbalan and Vueltas, three other small communities within Valle Gran Rey. All three have lots of shops. The port and fishing harbor is located in Vueltas.
