Take a ferry to La Gomera
The island with 22.000+ inhabitants and the capital San Sebastiàn de La Gomera is a very mountainous island. All the coast and coastal towns are surrounding the highest peak: Alto de Garajonay. This also means that if you go there by car: You can't travel very fast.
About the ferries going to La Gomera:
- The ferries are (mostly) modern and fast. Some are even among the fastest ferries in the world!
- The Benchi Express (28.7 meters) from San Sebastian to Valle Gran Rey (via Playa Santiago) is suspended since July 2021.
- We would advise going to this island for a minimum of three days instead of just going by for a day trip. It's nice to drive around and take it all very slowly. Don't go fast on this island.
- We focus of course on the routes ‘to La Gomera' however the route from La Palma is most often the other way a route ‘to la Palma‘.

Valley Gran Rey Ferry
We did some research on this ferry route that is not active anymore and we found the following:
The ship on this route is still there (sitting in the harbor) and waiting to start again, they are probably waiting for the demand to go up again. This ship had problems with distancing and COVID regulations. That's one of the reasons why this ship stopped going from Los Cristianos to Valley Gran Rey. However since Fred Olsen owns a large resort in Valley Gran Rey: This boat may sail again in the near future.
