Cruises To La Gomera

San Sebastian is the capital city of La Gomera, the second-smallest island in the Canaries. It offers a tranquil alternative to the flashier resorts of Lanzarote and Tenerife, making it a top choice for those in search of quiet beaches, traditional villages and historic fortresses. The town’s positioned on the island’s east coast, with a busy harbour where you can watch the vibrant boats bobbing up and down. You’ll find a ferry here if you wish to travel to the other Canary Islands. San Sebastian’s public squares offer a lively place to watch the world go by or enjoy a coffee on the terrace.

La Gomera


Soak in the sun, admire the views, or comb for pieces of beach glass on San Sebastian de la Gomera’s standout beaches. There are two main beaches in this petite capital, including Playa de San Sebastian and Playa de la Cueva. The first features dark lava sands and a children’s play area, the second a more secluded position popular with swimmers.

Visit the Torre del Conde to see an example of the Canary Islands’ military history. You can see old maps of the island dating back 500 years, as the fortress was built in 1447. Stroll around its subtropical grounds and learn more about how the island has been protected over the years!

Are you on the hunt for one-of-a-kind souvenirs? Pop by the main market in San Sebastian and you’ll find a treasure trove of goodies! Pick up honey made from local bees, or a special ‘miel de palma’ syrup made from the sap of palm trees. Another local delicacy to try is the almogrote cheese, studded with peppers and tomato.

Speaking of food, the cuisine is consistently fresh and delicious in San Sebastian, and its abundant tapas bars and restaurants offer a tempting array of small plates. Don’t miss the locally produced fresh goat’s cheese, usually served along with salads or grilled and covered in spicy mojo sauce.
