It can be found faille, heather, laurel, ferns, etc. The area affected by the cloud sea so that condensation of water vapor in the leaves of trees (horizontal raining) considerably increases the amount of water in the soil.

La Gomera, like the rest of the Canaries, is a volcanic island, but such episodes can be considered extinct in it taking place the last two million years ago. Because of this lack of eruptions in recent times, the erosionng the water has drawn numerous ravines and delineated prominent coastal cliffs. One example is the natural space protected Bodies in Northern Island.

The economy has been based throughout history in agriculture and the primary sector in general. Agriculture has been twofold, first self-sufficiency (vegetables) and other exports (bananas). Covering a priori not conducive to this activity, the crop has been possible thanks to the terraces built on the site and the network of canals and irrigation systems.

In recent years, economic development has been oriented towards tourism. The tourist areas are emerging Valle Gran Rey, Playa Santiago and San Sebastián de La Gomera.
