The beach with red volcanic sand
El Verodal Beach, on the northwestern coast of El Hierro, is in a marvellous setting in the municipality of La Frontera. Of singular beauty, especially due to its peculiar reddish volcanic sand, it is definitely worth a visit, although swimming here is not recommendable because of the strong currents. Nonetheless, El Verodal is a busy beach with truly spectacular scenery in volcanic surroundings, overlooked by impressive cliffs. The big lava flows are proof of the devastating force of the volcano during the last eruptions in this area of the island.
Enjoy the views and nature
Although swimming is not recommended here and no typical tourist services are available, it is definitely worth visiting El Verodal to enjoy this peculiar beach that is so different to all the others on the island. Located in almost virgin surroundings, it is perfect for anyone who likes to get back to nature and gaze at magnificent views. As the rest of the island, this area is also characterised by its rugged coastline, creating a wonderful setting for a perfect day.
