Discover El Hierro: Nature, Culture, and Charm in the Canary Islands
Explore the Natural Paradise of El Hierro
Perhaps it’s the untouched land, the careful environmental management, the splendid natural pools allowing you to immerse in the Atlantic waters safely, or the network of trails for hiking or biking offering the vastness of the ocean. El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, provides a unique experience of connecting with nature.
Discover the Natural Pools
Charco Azul, located in the bay of El Golfo, is a spectacular natural pool inviting you to swim in an incomparable environment. The pools of La Caleta, northeast of Valverde, offer convenient access, while Las Calcosas is a perfect excuse to explore a village of volcanic stone houses in the same bay.
The natural pools of La Maceta, in the Golfo de La Frontera, are especially fun as the sea waves liven up every swim. In El Hierro, the coves with black sand like Timijraque or red like El Verodal offer stunning landscapes, although not all are suitable for swimming.
Discover the Submarine Beauty
Immerse yourself in the crystal-clear waters of the Marine Reserve of La Restinga-Mar de las Calmas, considered one of the top underwater destinations in these latitudes. Spotting whales and dolphins in this marine paradise is not uncommon. The perfect spot for diving and marine life enthusiasts.
Explore the Cultural Riches
El Hierro is not only a natural paradise but also a cultural treasure. The Mirador de la Peña, designed by Cèsar Manrique, not only offers breathtaking views but also houses one of the most renowned restaurants on the island. Discover the unique architecture of this iconic place.
The busiest village, Tamaduste, along the road connecting Valverde to the airport, is vibrant in summer but peaceful during the rest of the year. Explore the authenticity of the villages in the north of El Hierro.
