How to get there?
There is no international airport in La Gomera. Normally you use the airport of Tenerife South and then you have a 30 minute drive to the ferry terminal of Los Christianos. The boat will take you in an hour to San Sebastian de la Gomera.
- Boat: There are two options for ferries to La Gomera . Check the timetables here: fredolsen.es and www.navieraarmas.com.
- Car: rent a car online with Cicar (allows for up to three drivers and they do not charge extra) at the airport or in the Port of San Sebastian de la Gomera. Fill the tank as there is no petrol station in Alojera.Playa de Alojera is a little over an hour drive from the ferry port of San Sebastian de la Gomera . The landscape is astonishing along the way. Try to avoid driving or arriving after sunset, especially in bad weather conditions.
Food and supplies
Do your shopping beforehand in the Trebol in San Sebastian or the Spar in Vallehermoso.
There are three little shops in Alojera.
Do not forget to buy water, as the tap water on La Gomera has a bad taste.
There is a regular coffee machine and a moka. So you have to buy ground coffee.
The sea : swimming and the sound of the waves
The temperature on the Canary Islands allows for year-round swimming, but as this is the Atlantic Ocean, always beware of the waves. With low tide it is easier to enter and exit the water.
The sea is very close by. You hear the sound of the waves. Some people prefer ear plugs to sleep.
The Rother walking guide of La Gomera exists in English, German and Dutch. You can buy it in specialised bookstores or online. The free app Maps.me (available in the Google Play Store) also has hiking trails. The mountains can be misty and cold, so be sure to pack the proper equipment when preparing for a day hike (or even a shorter walk).
The housing comes with a rooftop sun deck equiped with sun loungers and parasols
ATM’s are available at San Sebastian, Vallehermoso or Valle Gran Rey. For comfort, be sure to bring some cash tot the island. As for safety issues: there are none to worry about on Alojera.
