About the location

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 cafes 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.

On arrival at Tenerife South airport you will take a 20-minute minibus transfer to the port at Los Cristianos for the 40-minute catamaran or ferry crossing to La Gomera. Please note that, due to limited operating times, it may be necessary to wait in Tenerife for up to 6 hours (possibly longer at weekends). On arrival in La Gomera you will take a 45-minute taxi or minibus transfer to your hotel. Your return transfer will take the same course.
For evening/early morning flights, it may be necessary to spend your first and/or last night in a hotel in Tenerife. All timings are approximate and arrangements may change in the event of delays or adverse weather. We reserve the right to provide accommodation in Tenerife for the night should this occur.
 
Transfer time
1 hour 45 minutes shuttle and boat transfer from Tenerife South airport
