Near the town you can take a swim on a sand beach - not standard on La Gomera - The amenities are rudimental, but cross the road and you find a park with a kid playing ground. The beach is protected from the waves but not from the wind.

Lots of little eating places . The Small black sand beach was empty, it had a few straw sunshades which would... More

Our hotel is up a steep incline takes about 10 minutes down and 20 back but we earn our dinner! Vert relaxed place with beautiful scenery.... More

Having booked an organised trip by ferry from Los Christianos to La Gomera on Christmas Eve, we were collected at the hotel and shuttled to the ferry. The ferry journey took about 30 minutes, and on arrival in La Gomera we boarded a coach for a tour of the Island, which included lunch and a demonstration by the whistling waitrons.... More

We visited here from Playa de Santiago, where we were staying. It sa pretty little town with lots of interesting little shops, restaurants, small bars and a couple of lovely beaches. Well worth a visit.
