Hermigua natural pool

Bathe beside the Hermigua valley
Swimming beside four impressive columns isn't just a possibility in the Hermigua pool, at the base of an enchanting valley in the north of La Gomera, it is highly recommended! The four columns, each around 30 metres high, used to form part of the old davit, built at the start of the 20th Century to winch bananas and tomatoes into boats for export, and are a sight to behold nowadays. Enjoy a salt-water swim in a huge rock pool, protected from the force of the Atlantic Ocean. An opportunity not to be missed.
Banana plantations and incredible views in the north of La Gomera
Even though it is possible to drive through the banana plantation, parking near to the pool is difficult, so walking along the coastal path is a better option – and it will also allow you to enjoy the incredible views. When the sea is calm you can also use the annex to the pool, El Peñon, with its incredible sea bed, diving platforms and relaxed vibe. When the sea is rough, and only if bathing is allowed, you can swim in the protected pool beside the high seas.
