The coast of La Gomera has an interesting natural monument. While visiting La Gomea it is recommended to take a boat trip to get a better look at Los Organos which is a starling volcanic cliff which has the shape of an organ with pipes that drip into the ocean. This natural wonder can spark an interest in geology amongst young people.
