With direct flights from Aberdeen Airport to Tenerife, the Canaries have been a popular family holiday destination for years. But for those seeking a refreshing change then consider Tenerife’s charismatic neighbour, La Gomera.
This small, green island works well for families looking for something a little off grid, and for Scots seeking year-round sunshine slightly off the beaten track.
La Gomera offers the family-friendly resort, the sandy beaches and the sunshine, but it has a very different vibe. Valle Gran Rey on the west coast of the island has a cool, alternative scene.
Visitors won’t find epic water parks or vast shopping malls, but it does boast miles of sandy beach, an enticing esplanade, a sheltered “baby beach”, and Mother Nature serves up one of the best sunsets in Europe.
