La Gomera’s Sweetest Treat: Palm Syrup

La Gomera, the second smallest Canary Island, ascends from the Atlantic Ocean in shades of green and granite. Lush vegetation blankets its volcanic landscape while terraces lead to rocky peaks. Between Vallehermoso’s rugged canyons and Garajonay’s laurel forest, countless palm trees dot the terrain. And it’s here that La Gomera’s sweetest treat, palm syrup, originates.

From Palm to Plate

With over 130,000 specimens, La Gomera is the island of the Canaries that has the largest number of palm trees per capita. As a result, palm syrup, also known as Miel de Palma, is the undisputed star of Gomeran gastronomy. Its production reveals the close bond between La Gomera’s inhabitants and their environment.

The production of palm syrup starts with extracting the sap, or guarapo, from palm trees. The palms are cured by cutting the upper branches and accessing their soft, fleshy head. The heads are scraped with a fine gouge until the plant drains its sweet guarapo. Miraculously, this centuries-old process is harmless to the species and completely sustainable.

A palm tree can generate between 8 and 14 litres of guarapo each day. For a palm to “guarapear,” it must exceed 5 metres in height, taking some of them up to 50 years to achieve.

A permit is needed to extract the juice of a palm. Regulated extractions can only happen during a certain time of the year, usually three months. March–June is the best time for guarapo, after the palms have collected enough water over winter. Afterwards, the palm trees must rest and recover for five years.

The extracted sap is boiled and thickened into a dark syrup whose flavour is ideal for desserts, cocktails and sweet dishes. In fact, almost every restaurant in La Gomera offers some kind of dessert with palm honey. Chefs also appreciate its special flavour and texture to garnish meat, fish and salad dishes.

Palm syrup is so deeply rooted in Gomeran cuisine that it’s offered in almost any supermarket, craft fair, flea market and trade show. Tourists often visit just to buy palm syrup as a souvenir.

Much More Than a Sweet Delight

La Gomera’s cultivation of palm syrup proves how far natural resources can stretch. Much more than a sweet delight, palm syrup has excellent therapeutic properties too. Many islanders use it for healing wounds, burns, ulcers and sore throats. These uses create a palm syrup culture that goes far beyond cuisine.

At the Casa de la Miel de Palm, or Palm Honey House, in Vallehermoso, you can take guided tours that cover the centre’s different fields. The interpretation centre teaches visitors about the culture of the palm tree in La Gomera and the rest of the Canary Islands. Educational and experiential activities in a nearby palm grove make a great day out.

For families, there are workshops for making toys from the base of palm fronds. Palm syrup tastings are available during the guarapo extraction season. Their shop even sells different makes of locally-produced palm syrup, handicrafts, books about Gomeron culture and various aspects of the island.

For the sweet-toothed among us, La Gomera’s palm syrup not only reflects Canary Island cuisine, but it also presents an opportunity to discover a unique culture through its sweet flavours. And it doesn’t get any sweeter than this!

Following the trend of gastronomic destinations across the globe, Vallarta Lifestyles Publishing Group established Restaurant Week in 2005. Today, it features Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit’s most coveted eateries as they put on special events and offers for residents and visitors alike.

Better yet, participating restaurants will offer menus at set prices so you could save up to 50% on regular restaurant prices. This makes dining out not only more fun but also much more affordable.

Budget-Friendly and Within Easy Reach

Thanks to the new transport and accommodation options, the Seychelles is more affordable and accessible than ever. For starters, you don’t need a visa to get there, and flying from the UK has gotten much easier with new direct British Airways flights.

Seychelles’ ever-widening choice of affordable accommodation means that families can opt for small hotels, guesthouses, self-catering chalets and holiday homes. As well as providing excellent facilities that are well suited to families and great value for money, these establishments offer an authentic Creole experience.

Of course, Seychelles has exceptional 5-star stays that provide complete indulgence and peace of mind. Parents can relax as children enjoy the kids clubs and entertainment programmes that many top hotels offer.

The Perfect Environment

Often described as the perfect climate, Seychelles’ temperatures rarely dip below 24°C or rise above 32°C. Complementing the ideal climate is the archipelago’s pure, unpolluted air and untouched Indian Ocean. What’s more, there are no tropical diseases to worry about.

Wonderfully untouched and still relatively undiscovered, the Seychelles has outstanding natural beauty. It features some of the rarest life forms on Earth, including giant tortoises and rare birds that the whole family will adore.

Endless Activities

Just when you thought the Seychelles couldn’t get any better, it does. The only difficult choice you will encounter is deciding what activities to do. The whole family can enjoy the ocean with various water sports, from boat trips to snorkelling.

Seychelles also has many scenic hiking routes, where you can experience the wonderful island nature and its many tropical animals – a real treat for the kids! Visit Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and see the famous double-lobed coconut, the coco-de-mer.

For the adventure-seeking families, some of the many activities on offer include zip lining, horse riding, rock climbing and island-hopping. Not to mention, the excellent air and sea connections make day trips, quite literally, a breeze.

6 Can’t-Miss Watersports in La Gomera

In the Atlantic Ocean, La Gomera overflows with beautiful beaches and clear blue water that rarely dips below 20 degrees Celsius. Naturally, watersports are some of the island’s biggest draws. While the swimming season lasts from May to Jan., the mild climate and guaranteed sun in this Canary Island allows you to enjoy watersports year-round. Read on to see some of the thrilling experiences you can enjoy on your holiday.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Canoeing

Stand-up paddleboarding is derived from ancient Polynesian roots. People have practised this activity for centuries, but it surged in popularity when surfers started to use oars to improve their balance during training. The activity works your whole body, so it’s a great option if you love high-intensity exercise.

To practice this watersport, you will need a board, an oar or paddle and a good sense of balance. A good instructor can help you find the right board size. When it comes to the paddle, bigger ones need more strength to operate but allow you to go faster.

Three companies on the island – in Valle Gran Rey, San Sebastián and in Playa Santiago – can provide everything you need for either stand-up paddleboarding or canoeing.

Snorkelling & Diving

La Gomera has repeatedly been the setting for underwater photography and free diving championships because of its diverse natural resources and important seabeds. Infinite numbers of fish swim in sync while others hang back between the rocks. Subaquatic flora and fauna are so rich and diverse in La Gomera that the entire island was named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2012.

Snorkelling is a fantastic way to experience La Gomera’s water world up close. This sport is simple to practice as it only requires swimming on water’s surface with a diving mask and breathing tube. Swimming fins are also recommended to help you glide through the water with ease.

For the more experienced and adventurous types, there are drift dives, caves and deep reefs to explore. An impressive example is the diving spot at the Natural Monument of Los Organos, a huge volcanic structure that continues underwater. Other public institutions on the island organise “baptisms” in which you plunge into the world of diving for the first time.

Deep Sea Fishing

La Gomera’s rich marine life make it one of the world’s premier destinations for deep sea fishing. It is the home of blue marlin and a host of other species, such as white marlin, spearfish, tuna, bluefin, big-eye, yellowfin and albacore. There are even hammerhead and mako sharks, dorado and more to catch.

You can find many charter boats in San Sebastian’s marina offering their services, with world-class boats, equipment and expertise for big game fishing, bottom fishing, jigging and blue marlin fishing.

The ‘Isla de Gomera’ Deep Sea Fishing Championship is one of the most important sporting events of the year.  The event awards competitors for capturing and releasing fish such as marlin, garfish and tuna. The marlin and garfish are photographed and then returned to the sea, while the tuna are brought to the coast and, once weighed, donated to charity.

Boat Excursions

La Gomera has 90 km of virtually unexplored coastline. This makes the island’s marine life both rich and abundant. You can often spot schools of shimmering fish along with barracudas, rays, and turtles. Dolphins and whales also appear near the coast.

In fact, La Gomera is one the world’s hotspots for whale and dolphin watching with sightings of 30 different species. With only 87 species worldwide, you can see almost one-third of the existing species in one place.

Several companies provide boat and maritime excursions. Most excursions depart from the port of Vueltas (Valle Gran Rey), but you can also leave from San Sebastián and Playa Santiago.

Boat excursions are the perfect family activity because ships don’t need to travel far from the coast for a successful sighting. Just remember to bring your binoculars and camera!

If you want to enjoy La Gomera’s coasts at your own pace, you can rent small leisure boats and access spectacular coves to dive or swim in.
