Spectacular laurel forest

I was looking forward to seeing the laurisilva forest as I had seen pictures and paintings of it in San Sebastian. But so much of the forest was destroyed by fire in 2012. We... read more

I was looking forward to seeing the laurisilva forest as I had seen pictures and paintings of it in San Sebastian. But so much of the forest was destroyed by fire in 2012. We walked with a group to La Laguna Grande from Garajonay via Chipude through a lot of this destroyed forest and it was very upsetting as the... More

We stumble across La Laguna Grande by accident, however we had expected there to be water until we read the fact sheets. We found it to be very interesting and nicely laid out for children

We only stopped for a short time en route from Playa de Santiago on a day trip around the island but it was worthwhile. Seeing the rainforest up close with explanatory plaques was very informative. The visitor centre also helped with its multilingual displays of the history and the natural history of the island and its unique central rainforest. There... More

Most of the time you cannot expect a great view as it is cloudy but the walk is great anyway. Unfortunately you will see what the great fire has left in 2012.

We took a tour from Tenerife to La Gomera Island and were treated to a very informative day and once up in amongst the giant Erica's (heathers) and ancient laurel trees it seemed to be a different world, we then went for lunch which was a bit bland but the demonstration of the whistling language was impressive and very encouraging...

We could appreciate the attractions of Laguna Grande for the circular walks and the picnic area and as a break from driving on the endlessly winding roads, however when we arrived the already busy car park had just received up to 20 or so Landrovers on an island safari disgorging another 80 or some people. And this was a Monday... More

This picnic spot was a convenient break from driving on very winding roads which always seem to have a sheer drop on one side or the other! There were basic facilities, loos, coffee shop etc. and it was the starting point for a couple of walks. We followed the shorter one of around 5k. Parking was free and, if you... More

Excellent walking and good advice from Rangers. Dont miss local food - tapas local specialities from the snacks menu will make a delicious meal at modest prices. Our second walk and lunch!

Fantastic to find a great play area (or two even) high in the mountains, cafe and toilets too (long queues if a coach party arrives ) take warm clothes.

The little cafe coped well with the constant stream of tourists. The biscuits were delicious! To get there from the coach involved a first-hand experience of horizontal rain!
