La Estaca, El Hierro


La Estaca, El Hierro Overview

El Hierro - the smallest and most southerly of the Canary Islands – was once believed to be the end of the earth and even today it remains off the well-trodden tourist path of the Canaries. Arriving via the port of La Estaca you will experience the island’s incredible natural beauty, unspoilt landscapes and an UNESCO listed Biosphere Reserve that’s home to crystal clear natural swimming pools and stunning protected woodland areas.

The capital – Valverde – is only a short distance from the port and is a truly unique place to visit. Nestled within beautiful wooded hills, Valverde is the smallest of all the Canarian capitals and is the only one that isn’t located by the sea. In the pretty town centre you can sample local cheeses and other produce in the charming shops, while the surrounding pine forests and natural rocky landscapes are perfect for relaxing walks and sightseeing.

Away from Valverde, there's plenty more to see during your time in El Hierro. The La Frontera district is popular with visitors and if you choose to explore it's flourishing landscapes you'll understand why. Separated from the rest of the island by vast cliffs and tall mountains - which offer some truly stunning views - La Frontera feels like a tropical land, where fruit trees, vines and pineapples grow in abundance.
