San Sebastian de La Gomera is the capital of La Gomera, one of the islands forming the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands. The ferry routes departing the port are to neighbouring islands in the archipelago, ranging from 50 minutes to just over two hours.
Colourful boats next to luxury yachts line the harbour, bobbing up and down against the gentle hum of the Mediterranean Sea. This image embodies the sleepy, tranquil lifestyle that has become synonymous with San Sebastian, and has formed part of the reason for the gradual increase in tourism enjoyed by La Gomera’s capital. Sun kissed houses decorate the streets and the main squares are adorned by locals and tourists enjoying a refreshing drink amidst the glorious heat – the jovial conversation amongst friends is the loudest San Sebastian becomes.
Much of the architecture epitomises the quintessential Spanish coastal town, though there are a few impressive landmarks dotted around the city centre. The Torre del Conde is a medieval fortress consisting of stunning structural designs, and the chapel of St. Sebastian is well worth a visit, even for the agnostic visitors. After a day perusing the sights, treat yourself to a spot of typical Spanish cuisine; many restaurants serve tapas as the main dish, as well as the mandatory option of seafood fresh from the waters.
Given the simplistic nature, San Sebastian remains pedestrian friendly – cars are seldom spotted so visitors are free to walk at their own leisure.
The port is around a 5 minute drive from the city centre through the Avenida Marítima.
There are 3 bus services that link the La Gomera Ferry Port with other points on the island. The bus stop is near the Waterfront Port Building.
There is a taxi rank at the Port. A taxi ride to San Sebastian city Centre is approximately 3 €. Expect to pay around 40 € to north and west municipalities on the island.
