W04: Sailing holidays & Island hopping western Canary islands.
The wind comes quite constantly from the North East this time of year and with the spring-like temperature this ensures perfect sailing conditions for the Canary Islands. The first day we plan to sail to the island of “La Gomera”. Between La Gomera and Tenerife lies is a wind acceleration zone, which provides spectacular sailing conditions. Our destination is most probably the charming town of San Sebastian, where we will stay a day for an excursion inland. In the middle of the island lies the “Parque Nacional de Garajonay”, with one of the oldest forests in the world. Due to the enormous heather trees, laurel trees and deep ravines (baranco’s), this forest is unlike any other forest in Europe and because of its height you also have a beautiful view of the almost magical cloud blanket that keeps nature so beautifully green.
Next day we sail further to the north side of Tenerife. Through the wind acceleration zone into the shelter of Tenerife. In the lee of Tenerife we have a good opportunity to see pilot whales, a “smaller” whale species. Then we have planned two beautiful long sailing days, first to the island of La Palma and then to the West side of La Gomera, to “Valle Gran Rey”. A fishing harbor with an impressive red cliffs. The narrow alleys in the village lead to a bar with tapas and a beautiful view over the ocean, the perfect place for a sunset.
Then we cross over to “El Hierro”, another perfect day of sailing broad reach. This beautiful island is far from the tourist route and due to the black lava beaches, it is not an attraction for ordinary tourists anyway. Here too, we will spend a day exploring the island. The program includes the “Mirador de la pena”, hidden in the rocks with a breathtaking view over “El Golfo”
We sail back to Tenerife via the south side of La Gomera. This sailing voyage has the same start as end port.
The daily sailing distances are between 18 and 54 miles. The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
