“Very scenic, good parking, can be crowded”

Monumento Natural de Los Roques
Ranked #18 of 51 things to do in La Gomera
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 August 2018

This area has a couple of parking areas where you can get out and walk a bit to get better views of the impressive Roques (large scenic rocks). Good parking lots, but at certain times of the day it can be pretty crowded with day tourist coming from Tenerife. Impressive views but the place can be wet, windy and cold. When we visited the first time it was so windy we could barely stand. Worth visiting especially in a sunny day and early or late in the day for a less crowded, more peaceful experience.

Beautiful rock formation. Mother Nature at its best. During our day trip, we saw so many different rock formations and incredible scenery. Visiting La Gomera is a must do!

This is not obvious to find on Google Maps but seems to be the "Los Roques" part of the Garajonay National Park. Most pictures show the Roque de Agando when talking about this place. These can be seen from several overlooks on the drive through the Los Roques part of the park and are quite impressive after the lack of views in the forest parts of the park. Weather will have to be good or at least some visibility or you will see nothing. Probably one of the more spectacular views in La Gomera, which is not saying that much since we found more spectacular views on nearly all the other Canary Islands (this means Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma and El Hierro).

Touring the island even in a cruise coach one is awed by the changing spectacle of massive blocks of rock soaring in all directions towards the sky, each valley having its own set of cliffs and outcrops between the old terraces, but this particular set of rocks includes the ones most meriting the photo-stop .

Did a day trip to this island an extinct (?) volcano,apparently the only Spanish island declared Heritage of the Mankind. If you like beautiful views and mountainous country,I recommend this place. We did it by coach, but according to friends it was even better (and more frightening ) by jeep, going up and down tracks that the coach could not go. Take warm,weather proof coat,you end up in the clouds and make sure you have your camera handy.
The tour included lunch (not exceptional) with wine, and a very interesting demonstration of the local system of communication by whistling to each other!
If you don't like roads with a "drop"on one side though think hard before doing the drive! (We had one or two passengers changing window seats.
