The beautifully formed rock formations Los Organos, on the northern coast of La Gomera, are considered to be one of the most beautiful basalt formations on the Canary Islands. The slender cliffs rise up out of the sea to a height of 800 metres and a width of 200m.
The pillars, which look very similar to organ pipes, are the remains of vast lava masses of a once powerful volcano. Over time, erosion exposed the rocks, forming them to a natural work of art.
The most beautiful basalt wall on the Canaries
The perfect basalt pillars rise from the Atlantic like giant organ pipes. They are surrounded by high waves and white sea spray.
Because the cliffs drop steeply into the sea, the only way to see Los Organos in all their might, is by taking a boat tour.
Los Organos by boat
Even though the Atlantic often shows its rougher side on the north coast, with waves swirling around the pillars, this boat tour is one of the most popular on La Gomera.
During the trip to the impressive cliff, the boat passes by imposing valleys and coastal regions, small towns, and bays. There is also a good chance of seeing whales and dolphins en route.
Popular excursion on La Gomera
Excursions to Los Organos are offered on La Gomera, especially in the holiday and small harbour towns of Playa Santiago and Valle Gran Rey.
