Its excellent tourism facilties offer a wide range of leisure activities, including all kinds of nautical sports: deep-sea diving, sailing, submarine fishing and other water sports in the port area.
Apart from amazing beaches and water sports facilities, La Gomera's main must-see attraction is the central Garajonay National Park, a 40-km² area of great biodiversity. The park features countless trails from the lower pine woods right up to the laurisilva cloud forest at an elevation of nearly 1,500 m, which are ideal for outdoor pursuits.
A bit of history about San Sebastien de La Gomera
San Sebastien de La Gomera was found by Hernán Peraza "el Viejo" in the mid-15th century. It developed as a town at the mouth of La Villa ravine. A few decades later, it had become a thriving commercial port and remains so to this day. The city is situated on a cliff overlooking the bay. The old House of los Peraza, which is situated in the spot now is known as Pozo de la Aguada - one of the city's main historic sites.
La Gomera's deep ravines have also given rise to a unique whistled language, called silbo. Ancient in origins and widely practised in the days before telephony, the language is experiencing a revival since it became an official part of the island's school curriculum.
San Sebastien de La Gomera port
Los Cristianos is the main port town on Tenerife's south coast. Until the Seventies, its harbour was teeming with shipping boats loading up rum and salted fish. Nowadays, it's yachts, ferries and glass-bottom boats that come and go, while luxury apartment blocks and restaurants have sprung up along the picturesque seafront.

This is the 7th year using this ferry crossing to La Gomera from Los Cristianos and it has always been a stress free trip. Fred Olsen are always late in releasing there ferry timetable in advance and this causes problems in coordinating with booking flights well in advance.

Tenerife to La Gomera. There is no public service bus to the port which makes life difficult if your have luggage. There is a great facility for putting luggage into a mobile storage locker which is unloaded at the end of the journey - great idea - just remember the E1 fee is not refundable so anytime you want to get something from the locker before departure costs 1 Euro. Check in very simple if pre-booked they just scan your passport. Very few sailings a day so you can't afford to miss it. Dreadful background music whilst the boat is in vicinity of the harbour! Quality of the coffee on board, in paper cups, leaves a lot to be desired.
