Stop at: Muelle de los Cristianos
The two shipping companies that operate in the port of Los Cristianos, in the south of Tenerife, connect the island with the ports of San Sebastián, on the island of La Gomera, La Estaca, on the island of El Hierro, and Santa Cruz de La Palma, a port with a high level of tourist activity and significant passenger traffic, mainly to La Gomera. There are also numerous boats that, from this port, go on tourist excursions to visit the cliffs of Los Gigantes or to watch whales and dolphins.
Stop at: Hermigua
Hermigua also has the best climate in the world, according to foreign scientists at the beginning of the last century. And that is no lie. Nestled in a ravine that is lost in the gaze, it ends at the beach of Santa Catalina, a privileged space where the green extensions of the banana trees play with the blue of the sea, ending at the Hermigua davit, one of the most picturesque places of the island's heritage, where the prisms of the jetty, exceptional witnesses of the town's past, still remind us of the municipality's past as an exporter.
Stop at: Caleta Beach and Agulo
Playa la Caleta is located only 10 minutes from the centre of Hermigua. This beach is considered to be the best beach in the north of the island of La Gomera.
This is a very well cared for and recognised place by both locals and tourists. The beach has several services and facilities such as showers, picnic areas and restaurants.
Agulo is located in a natural depression, its historic quarter - one of the best preserved in the Canary Islands - is elevated on a natural platform that serves as a balcony overlooking the sea. It is a unique place where you can have a clear view of the Teide volcano on the island of Tenerife.
Stop at: Garajonay National Park
The park stands out above all for being the main exponent of the Canarian laurel forest, an ecosystem from the Tertiary Era, which disappeared from the continent as a consequence of the climatic changes that occurred during the Quaternary. The laurel forest of the Garajonay concentrates half of the mature tree cover of this type of vegetation in the whole archipelago, in optimum conditions of conservation.
With the frequent fogs, from the Agulo viewpoint you will have the sensation of flying over Agulo. Here you can enjoy an impressive view of the centre of the municipality and the three main towns that make up the lower part: El Charco, Las Casas and, a little further away, La Montañeta. On the horizon you can see the island of Tenerife, and on the clearest days you can clearly make out the Teide.
Stop at: Los Roques Natural Monument
The Roques Natural Monument is located on the divide separating the headwaters of the La Laja and Benchijigua ravines. The area includes the rocks of Agando, Ojila, La Zarcita and Carmona, which are spectacular examples of intrusive volcanism, excavated by erosion.
Stop at: San Sebastián
Traces of its history include the Torre del Conde, a fortress of medieval origin and the oldest preserved construction on the Islands; the church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, a veritable museum of sacred art with works from the 16th to the 19th centuries; the chapel of San Sebastián, built around 1530; and the so-called Casa de la Aguada, with its well from which legend has it that Christopher Columbus took the water with which the new continent was baptised.
San Sebastián is also an extensive municipality dotted with farmhouses with beautiful constructions of traditional Canarian architecture, such as those of La Laja, Vegaypala or Tejiade, witnesses to its agricultural past and landmarks in the traditional paths that link them and which form part of the island's network of footpaths.
San Sebastián de La Gomera keeps the island's patron saint, the Virgin of Guadalupe, in her hermitage in Puntallana. Every five years she goes out in procession to all the municipalities of La Gomera, attracting thousands of faithful and onlookers to the island's most important festivities: the lustral festivities.
