Valle Gran Rey (La Gomera)#8 in Best Things To Do in Canary Islands
Price & Hours
Valle Gran Rey (Great King Valley) is a valley located on La Gomera's southwest coast. Exploring on foot is one of the main things to do here, and there are scenic paths that crisscross the valley's small villages and banana plantations. As travelers journey eastward toward the coast, they'll find the port beach, which features calm, safe waters for swimming. More experienced swimmers can head to La Playa's pebble beach, just north of the port beach. La Playa also contains beachfront hotels, a small promenade and a handful of terrace cafes.
One TripAdvisor user said Valle Gran Rey feels like it's almost untouched by tourism, recommending visitors "hang out at the plaza at night with the hippies, enjoy the music and fire shows, and just chill and enjoy the simple pleasures in life."
