SUNSET DINING

  • We usually come to LG between January and April every year and we always make sure we book an outside table at La Pergola at around 8 o clock to watch the excellent sun set.

    We are now coming out in December so does the sun still set at this location or somewhere else on the island.

    Also I do recall it gets chilly in January in the evening. Should I still book an inside table.

  • PABLADO,
    In December the sun sets over the middle of La Gomera at approx. 1800.
    At the moment it sets over the North end of La Gomera at 2000.

    Book an inside table for your meal but sit outside for your G&T's. You can move inside when the sunset has gone.

  • I've lived here now for 9 years and as far as I can recall the sun has always gone down in the west but I will check it out again later this evening and report back 8) 8) 8)

  • Amibovvered,
    You are correct! It does always set in the West (give or take a few degs)

    Using La Pergola as a reference point:

    Two weeks ago sunset was due West (off the North end of La Gomera) Exactly 270 deg.
    Three months ago sunset was over La Palma (290 deg).
    In the middle of January sunset will be over the middle of La Gomera (245 deg)
    After mid January the sunset starts to move North again.

    I'm not an expert.......just interested in it!!

    Thank you so much @el presidente

    I always like to get my angles right and last night I captured one of the best sunsets I've ever seen, here's the photo to prove it.

  • I am sorry Mata Hari felt that my post was a bit stupid but what I was trying to acheive was


    Me and my wife like the restaurant very much and I wanted to see if the sun still set at that time of the year which we both enjoy ( We don't really see that sort of thing in Essex)

    Also I thought that people who viewed this post would also like to know and enjoy the evening has much as us.

  • Pablado you must also try the new place just along from the Mercadona Supermarket, it's on the RH side as if you were driving out towards the road to Alcala, it's called Martini (formerly Sauco) the sunset will be great from there as well and the food & atmosphere. There were 8 of us there last week & all had a lovely meal but just a tad too late for the sunset.
