  • "Interesting"

    Anyone travelling from La Palma to Tenerife should know that there is stopover in La Gomera to pick up passengers. This was not clear at the outset. The boat is clean and the amenities good and the staff friendly. However ...this journey is not for the faint hearted or for those who suffer from travelsickness. Between La Gomera and La Palma the sea is very rough. Also the trips either start or end at night or early morning due to scheduling.

Santa Cruz de La Palma Guide

The Spanish city of Santa Cruz de la Palma is located on the east coast of the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands. It is the island's second largest city, after Los Llanos de Aridane, but it is the island's capital. The city was founded by 1493 by Alonso Fernandez de Lugo and was located next to a river that was situated by a cave named Tedote (now Cueva de Carla) to the north of the city. The city's original name was called Villa del Apuron and its port connected routes to the Americas, from which goods from the island were exported. The city is characterised by its cobbled streets, timber balconies and ancient buildings and is just a short stroll from the holiday resort of Los Cancajos. For passengers disembarking at the city's port, the town centre is just across the road from the harbour's entrance.

Santa Cruz de la Palma has the only major port in the island, serving ferry routes to Cádiz in Spain, as well as to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. The main ferry operators in the port are Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen Express. Many cruise line firms also operate from the port.

Los Cristianos Guide

The Spanish town of Los Cristianos is one of the most popular resorts on the island of Tenerife, which is one of the Canary Islands. The town's beaches are beautiful and always busy and its port offers fishing trips, pleasure cruises and scuba diving trips to the nearby island of La Gomera. In the town's early history it was a small fishing town that has since experienced significant growth and expansion over recent decades to make it a popular destination in itself. The pedestrian area of the town that borders the beach seems to be where most of the action is and along the long promenade you will find many restaurants, bars and cafes that offer good local and international food. Head away from this area and you will find many exclusive boutiques along with great shops from where bargains can be found.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Valverde, San Sebastian de la Gomera and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
