San Sebastian De La Gomera – guide

SAN SEBASTIAN DE LA GOMERA

Communication

San Sebastian is a small capital city, counting only 8 thousand. residents. City, especially its historic part, you can (and you even have to) explore on foot, because taxis are the only means of public transport (in fact, only needed then, when someone would like to drive to the Parador hotel on a cliff above the city).

San Sebastian has the main bus station (Avda. V Centenary; 922141101, srgomera @ servicioregulargomera.com, www.servicioregularlagomera.com)

La Gomery, from which buses depart to the rest of the island. Most vehicles go first to pick up the tourists waiting at the port, and then returns to the station at the scheduled time.

Orientation and information

Even people without a sense of orientation will have no problem getting around San Sebastian. All sights, most of the accommodation and restaurants are located on the Americas Beach and Constitución Beach and on the main street of the city that separates them, real street, also called calle del Medio.
