World’s Most Beautifully Located Hotel is in La Gomera Island
Generally, I begin a travel guide to any island with information about the island, how to reach, what to eat etc.
However, this time, I am writing about the staying options in La Gomera Island, specifically about Jardin Tecina, the hotel that is built with the most beautiful view in the world.
Actually, I stumbled upon the pictures of Jardin Tecina hotel in La Gomera. I was captivated so much so that I ended up studying all about traveling to La Gomera Island, a Spanish Island located in the Atlantic Ocean.
First, look at the images of hotel Jardin Tecina.
You get to see the majestic Atlantic Ocean from wherever you are in hotel Jardin Tcina. The calming blue of the Atlantic is seen and felt from the balcony of your hotel room, from the dining, and from your bedroom.
Hotel Jardin Tecina’s location in La Gomera Island.
La Gomera Island’s landscape is mountainous and that too volcanic. However, there is no fear of volcanic eruptions there.
Hotel Jardin Tecina is tastefully located high on a cliff that promises an all-round view of the Atlantic Ocean. When you walk around Jardin Tecina, you will see yourself surrounded by rocky ravines, gorges filled with lush vegetation of laurel forest whose name is derived from the long and glossy leaf called ‘laurophyll’.

Now, its time to know about La Gomera Island:
Have you heard about the Canary Islands? It is an archipelago comprising 7 main islands and several smaller islets. The Canary Islands belong to Spain. These islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean.
La Gomera is one of the smallest Canary Islands and is located close to Tenerife Island.
Though the Canary Islands belong to Spain, don’t imagine they are found as tiny small dots close to the Spanish coast. The Canary Islands are too far off from the mainland Spain. Tenerife, one of the main islands of Canary Islands is located at a distance of a whopping 1340 km away from Spain.
Reaching La Gomera Island.
There are no direct flights to La Gomera. You have to fly up to Tenerife and from there, you have to cross the sea and reach La Gomera in about 5 hours time. La Gomera Island is 150 km away from Tenerife.
Three interesting facts about La Gomera Island
- The original inhabitants of La Gomera used to communicate with their clan through a whistling sound. It is called Silbo Gomero. Since the entire island of La Gomera is mountainous, the locals who used to work in deep ravines will be communicated through this whistling sound only that can be said to be heard over 3 km away from the origin of the sound.
- The legendary seafarer Christopher Columbus stayed in La Gomera for a full month with all his fleet.
- Christopher Columbus was gifted with sugarcane sticks by the local chieftain’s wife and that’s how the sugarcane reached the rest of the world.
