Playa de Santiago is a quite seaside town with a pleasant pebble beach, small selection of shops and restaurants and ferries to San Sebastian and Valle Gran Rey. Do try the Portuguese bakery!

A really beautiful small village with surprisingly good restaurants. Splash Gomera rents kayaks and SUP boards.

We love this town, its people and the atmosphere. Some great restaurants that cater for a low cost lunch or fine dining. The square often has entertainment in the evenings and the local supermarket provides a good range of produce for self catering requirements.

We travelled pretty much all over the island and were so pleased to get back to Playa de Santiago at the end of the day.

Theres not too much to do here as the beach isn't the largest and not much to see either. There is mainly a pebble beach which the waves crash against which is pleasant to listen to when chilling over a beer or coffee or sangria

A peacefull, nice coastplace in the south of La Gomera. The level is higher than Valle Gran Rey and it is more quiet. No massa tourism.

Playa de Santiago is a pretty village. It's incredibly clean and well serviced as regards, restaurants, shops, cafes. It has 3 small supermarkets. It's a good place for a base if you want to do some walking or just want to chill out.

A lovely little village with a few bars, restaurants, mini markets and black sand beach. Also an excellent art and craft gallery.
