Embarcadero del Faro de Orchilla

A pleasant dip in the Mar de las Calmas (Sea of Calms)
The Embarcadero del Faro de Orchilla (Jetty of the Orchilla Lighthouse) is the head of a traditional jetty that was left as a witness to the old shipping connections that were made at the time when the Orchilla Lighthouse was built. Today it is a pleasant bathing spot located in an isolated area at the northern end of the Mar de las Calmas. This remote spot is located at the southernmost and westernmost point of Spain. The Orchilla Lighthouse was of great value in ancient cartography, as it lies on the Greenwich Meridian. It is the most important civil monument on the island of El Hierro.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the water.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants from the environment.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not use soap or gel in the showers.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.) or activities that might be bothersome, such as ball games.
