El Hierro

The Island of EL HIERRO

The El Hierro island is located in the Canary Islands. It is home to approximately 30,000 people. La Lajas de Benidorm is the capital city. Other cities include San Andres del Guayabo in the north-east, Puerto de la Cruz in the south-west, Yeguada Grande in the east, and Cala Ratjos on the west.

The stunning Charco Azul bathing pools are located on El Hierro, one of the less-known Canary Islands. This stunning volcanic formation and turquoise waters can be found in the valley of El Golfo. It is the perfect place to relax the day away. Bliss.

There are some amazing hiking trails in El Hierro, especially at dawn. You should follow the marked routes around the island. Do not be deceived by the wind! The sun is strong, so make sure to apply sunblock frequently and drink plenty of water. Nobody wants to be spotted on a hike looking like a raisin.

The landscape of El Hierro is varied. Lava formations and slag deserts are the main features of El Hierro’s south. You can see stone pine and laurel trees in the west. However, you will also find fruit plantations in the south and north. The island is surrounded by steep, rocky, and sloping coastlines that are only partially accessible.

El Hierro is a stunning place with amazing scarps, natural forests and deep gorges. It also has unique bays. The UNESCO has not declared the island a biosphere preserve yet!

There are many natural attractions to be found here. The juniper grove El Sabinar can be found in the west part of the island. The dominant feature of the juniper grove El Sabinar is the tree tops that have been pressed against ground by strong winds and are still in place to this day. This grove, together with the fog from the weather, is El Hierro’s landmark.

There are also many observation points (miradores), which can be found on the island. From these, you can admire El Hierro’s landscape and nature. Mirador de La Pena is the most well-known. The Lagatario Museum is a unique attraction. It houses a rare Komodo dragon breeding station. These reptiles were thought to be extinct, but a hiker discovered them in 1970. They are now a protected species.
