So...

Where is La Gomera?

La Gomera is part of the Canary Islands archipelago, situated in the Atlantic Ocean near the coast of Africa.

Still, the archipelago is territory of Spain, so if you decide to visit, you will still be on EU soil.

The closest island to La Gomera is Tenerife, which is also the largest of all 7 main islands that form the archipelago.

How to get to La Gomera

Since La Gomera does not have an international airport, the closest one is the Tenerife South Airport.

So in order to get here, you have to book your ticket to Tenerife and then take the ferry. This is a short journey, only 45 minutes.

From the airport you can take the bus to Los Cristianos, the port from where the ferry leaves for San Sebastian (La Gomera).

Bus schedule from the airport to Los Cristianos available here.

There are 2 ferry companies available: Fred Olsen and Naviera Armas.

You can book the ticket online for a better price. The journey costs around 34 euros/person/one way.

Airplane to La Gomera

If you stay in the north of Tenerife, or arrive on the airport in the north and want to come to La Gomera, you may choose to fly here.

Binter Canarias has daifly flights from Tenerife North Airport to San Sebastian airport in La Gomera. The price is almost the same as the ferry, so it depends on you how you choose to make the transfer.

Accommodation in La Gomera

La Gomera is not a destination for those seeking luxury, but it still has some amazing options. We've gathered for you a list of the most amazing Airbnb rentals in La Gomera.

Garajonay National Park

The park is situated in the center of the island, and it has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.

This is the main attraction in La Gomera, and it offers endless possibilities for hikes and sightseeing.

Garajonay forests are known for the laurel trees that grow here, but there are over 2000 species of plants in total.

The landscape is almost always covered with low clouds and mist, which give the place a mysterious vibe.

The place is well loved by photographers, and you can easily tell why, just by looking at the photos.
