La Gomera internal ferry returns

La Gomera is set to see its internal ferry connection restored after a 5-year absence, according to the regional Department of Transport.

The news comes after ferry operator Fred Olsen applied for the licence to run the San Sebastián, Playa Santiago and Valle Gran Rey route, that last ran in 2011.

The new service is expected to launch in the not to distant future, enabling people to commute to the islands capitals without having to use the road network on the island.
