The island's capital, San Sebastían of La Gomera, is the largest settlement on La Gomera, with a population of almost 9,000. The island is connected to the neighbouring islands of Tenerife and La Palma via the ferry port (from July 2017 onwards, there’s a smaller ferry service from San Sebastian to Valle Gran Rey).
You can learn a lot about the history of La Gomera in San Sebastían. The archaeological island museum is located right next to the 15th-century “Nuestra Señora de la Asunción” church. Both the "Torre del Conde" in the municipal park and the Tourist Information building provide interesting information and exhibitions.
In San Sebastían there are many cozy bars and restaurants and a lot of small shops / boutiques, you can sniff a little "city air". Nevertheless, our small island capital is very calm and tranquil. Without hustle and bustle you can stroll through the pretty pedestrian zone or enjoy the day at one of the two city beaches. Here one can swim all year in the Atlantic, because in San Sebastian there’s (almost) always sun.
You can also go up to the "Hotel Parador" and enjoy the great view of the town from the beautiful, surrounding park!
The nature reserve of “Puntallana” with its small chapel and the Natural Park of “Majona” are just as interesting places for excursions as the municipalities of “Chejelipes” and “La Laja” with their dams.
