Playa Santiago is a small fishing village on the southern coast of La Gomera, it has developed gradually into an attractive tourist venue that keeps its authenticity, among restaurants, little shops and bars by the beach, the daily village life is taking its course. Fishermen are coming back to the port after a long night fishing, the old men are meeting for their daily game of Domino in the village square.
The village has opened to tourists in the 80’s when the Olsen family built the beautiful Hotel Jardin Tecina overlooking the Atlantic, the Hotel offers a variety of services, restaurants, tennis courses and Padel.
On the slopes of Tecina just above the village lies the Tecina Golf course, unique in its overwhelming view to the ocean and to mount Teide.
