|Getting to La Gomera is easy from most airports within the UK. Flights go to Tenerife South from most UK regional airports, they take around 4 hours 30 minutes from Scotland & 4 hours from the rest of the UK. When you arrive in Tenerife you need to travel to Los Christianos by taxi or bus. The taxi fare is around 24 Euro. The bus service is very reliable and will take you all the way to the ferry and a return for 60 Euro and this includes the return fare on the ferry.
Leave Scotland on an early flight on a Friday and you can be sitting in San Sebastian enjoying a cold beer on Friday early evening. Fish Sat & Sun and back home of Monday. No risk of being blown off with adverse weather. The flight & travel costs can be cheaper than flying to Shetland.
