Holiday of the Senses
Be Active or Enjoy Relaxing
Dive, snorkel, fish. Spend the night in the bar dancing and gambling. Work your way through the expansive library. Take an easel to paint in nature. Climb our own hill at sunrise and let yourself be overwhelmed by the fantastic view across the sea. Hike along the surrounding hills to San Sebastián – with a pause to bathe and swim in a secluded bay. Whatever your tastes: If you like to be active El Cabrito offers every kind of inspiration and stimulation.
But you can also do nothing at all. If you have had nothing but meetings and conferences all last year you might want to spend your holidays just relaxing in a pleasant environment. Whatever way you want: El Cabrito offers the setting for very special holidays suited to your senses with a lot of nature included.
Beach and Sea
El Cabrito's bay belongs to the prettiest beaches of La Gomera. From there you can watch the sun rise out of the sea. Our beach of black sand is scattered with smaller and larger pebbles. There are firmly fixed sun-shades, loungers, sweet-water showers as well as toilets.
