When to Visit

La Gomera, with its mild, stable climate, is a year-round destination. Yet, if you're keen on avoiding damp forest hikes, the best time to experience the island is between May and October when the weather settles down. It's also when the sea is warmest for swimming.

The winter months, November till April, while slightly wetter, are still pleasant with plenty of sunshine days. Given fewer tourists, it's the ideal time for a tranquil escape. But remember, always pack a raincoat for those strolls in the misty cloud forest!
