Averages for La gomera in January
One of the smallest and least visited Canary Islands; La Gomera is a sun-drenched, natural paradise in the Atlantic Ocean. With pristine beaches and mountains with lush rainforests, and wonderful weather this island is a dream holiday destination for travellers who want to get off the beaten path. Although easily accessible by ferry from one of the larger nearby islands, La Gomera does not see the volume of tourists the other Canary Islands do, making it a good choice for the more discerning tourist.
January may be one of the coolest months in La Gomera but it is still warm, temperate and lovely for a winter holiday. The average temperature during January is 18 degrees Celsius. The temperature can range from 14 degrees up to 21 however. The surrounding Atlantic Ocean remains brisk in January at 20 degrees Celsius so you may be better off swimming in the hotel pool rather than the ocean. Fortunately, the island enjoys nine hours of sunshine each day.
Regarded as one of the best value hotels on the island, the Hotel Anaterve in Vallehermoso on the northern half of the island offers a comfortable and affordable stay in La Gomera. This hotel can be a bit of a hike but if you’re looking for a hotel that is off the beaten path, this hotel is perfect, complete with friendly hosts. The views from this hilltop hotel make the hike worth it.
During January, La Gomera and the Canary Islands celebrate numerous religious and national holidays including the New Year, The Three Holy Kings and the Day of Saint Sebastian, the patron saint of the islands. On New Year’s Eve, the Spanish celebrate by eating twelve grapes right after the bell tolls at midnight. If you eat all the grapes before the bell is done tolling, you will have good luck all year!
