It also offers amazing views from its viewpoints. La Peña viewpoint is one of the most popular, since it allows you to contemplate the El Golfo valley. But there is also Isora, Jinama, Tanajara, Lomo Negro … If you are passionate about photography or want to see the island from above, you will love it.
Another reason to go to El Hierro is for its “beaches.” You will find incredible places to enjoy a good swim, although somewhat different from what you have in mind. In this case, it stands out for its natural pools of crystalline waters. Charco Los Sargos, Charco Azul or Cala de Tacorón are very special.
The seabed is also amazing. You will find many immersion points, so if you want to learn diving, it is one of the perfect destinations. Some of the main attractions are El Bajón, Baja Bocarones or the Devil’s Cave. In addition, the dive centers are fully equipped.
And finally, another reason to go to this island is because of the tranquility it offers. Being the most remote of the archipelago is perfect to disconnect, to get away from everything and enjoy hiking, nature and amazing places.
