Luxury Playa de Santiago Holidays

Small-town charm

Playa de Santiago

Playa de Santiago is a pretty-as-a-postcard fishing village on La Gomera’s southern tip. One of the smallest and least developed of the Canary Islands, La Gomera pulls in a quieter crowd than neighbours like Tenerife, tending to attract a nature-loving lot looking to soak up the sunshine and rugged beauty of the Canaries.

For keen hikers, bird-watchers and explorers, Playa de Santiago is the ideal jump-off point for exploring the island. You’ve got a lovely little protected beach that’s a good spot for swimming, with a handful of cafés and restaurants along the waterfront for trying the catch of the day.Island capital San Sebastian is a 30-minute drive away, and most of the island can be reached within an hour and half.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Tenerife is around 4 hours 30 minutes. From here, it's a 40-minute ferry crossing to La Gomera.

When to go

Like the rest of the Canaries, La Gomera is a year-round beach destination. Temperatures rarely dip below the late teens, even in winter. April and May starts heating up for summer, which reaches its peak in July and August – often in the 30s.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
