EL HIERRO: Small Unknown Island

El Hierro is the most westerly and the smallest island of the archipelago.

The island has the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation Photo and is home to natural swimming pools and crystal clear waters, ideal for swimming and scuba diving, as well as huge areas of protected woodland in the inland area.

All those reasons made el Hierro an ideal place to make relaxing holidays in direct contact with nature Photo

Its steep rocky coast Photo is very different from the wide beaches which are dominating on the Canary Islands, though we find here as well a beach of 14 kilometers length, at Golfo.

From the central tableland, with volcanic craters and nice woods, and its highest peak, Malpaso (1.501 m.), you will have a great panorama.
