About El Hierro

El Hierro is the smallest of the Canary Islands, a tiny, volcanic, cliff-lined dot in the middle of the Atlantic. If you’re looking for remote this is the place to come, it’s definitely got a sense of being the edge of the world, which is just what it’s best known for - this is where Columbus sailed from in 1492. The best places to stay on El Hierro are those which make the most of the dramatic remoteness of the setting. And of the strange volcanic shapes and black sand, but also of the lush meadows and juniper groves. Many of the best places to stay on El Hierro are eco hotels, as the whole island is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and they take their conservation and energy efficiency very seriously.

  • The Hotel Balneario Pozo de la Salud is right on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, with 22 spacious rooms and a great pool and spa. This is the perfect hotel for you if you’re looking for the sense of being at the end of the world…
  • Or there’s the Parador de El Hierro, which also has an edge of the world feel, but this time on the other side of the island. You still get the amazing Atlantic views, but the water in front of you is a bit calmer, and you’re on the beach, not the cliffs. There are 45 rooms.

Still not sure which is the best place to stay on El Hierro for you?
