The climate of La Gomera (Canary Islands / Spain)
After El Hierro La Gomera is the smallest of the Canary Islands. Just like the other islands La Gomera is a volcanic island. The island is of volcanic origin and is roughly circular; if you take a look at the map you can see how the island started in the middle and then acquired its round shape. La Gomera has two weather types. The northern part of the island is much cooler all year round. The southern part of the island gets about twice the amount of hours of annual sunshine. The climate figures below are for the southern part of the island. In the northern part the peaks of Mount Garajonay which is covered with Laurel forests are almost always enclosed by mist. The southern part is much warmer and consequently much more pleasant to stay in. This is caused by the warm Gulf Stream that passes here. Because of this the weather is suitable for a holiday all year round.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
