/What you have to see/
La Peña Viewpoint
700m above the sea
This work of art from Canarian master César Manrique has one of the best views of the El Golfo valley and its kilometre-high cliffs, Inside you'll find a restaurant serving a wide range of traditional Canarian food. Tuck in and enjoy the fabulous views.
The Garoé Tree
A mystery from the past
This magical site full or energy was sacred to the island's original inhabitants as a giant tree provided them with all the water they needed. Today there's an interpretation centre that explains how its leaves harvested the horizontal rain, and how the locals revered the site.
Charco Azul Pool
A natural pool just for you
This natural seawater pool, in the majestic El Golfo valley, is a gift from the island's volcanoes to its people. Here you can bathe in the warm ocean, then sunbathe on the wooden decking. While it's a quiet, pristine natural area it's easy to access.
An enchanted forest
Walking into this nature reserve is like visiting an enchanted forest full of magical, wind-twisted junipers. This type of forest, with trees up to eight metres tall, only grows in three places around the world and as such is a icon of El Hierro.
