Hotel Jardin Tecina, La Gomera

This charming 4-star resort hotel is on the island of La Gomera, accessible from Tenerife’s North Airport, or via a ferry crossing from Los Cristianos to San Sebastian de la Gomera, the capital city, which operates daily and takes less than an hour.

El Laurel is a beach-side tranquil place serving grilled meats and freshly caught seafood, and then there’s the Cave 2, the ultimate in romantic, candlelit dining in a natural cave overlooking the ocean.

Tecina Golf: This superb golf course is part of Hotel Jardin Tecina. With incredible views of the Atlantic and Tenerife, it descends on different terraces, giving it a unique stepped design. In the upper parts it feels wild and arid, before you descend to the tropical fruit trees of the lower parts. You won’t forget it.
