El Pinar

The charm of a rural town in El Hierro
The pretty town of El Pinar is the gateway to the south of the island. Taking the road from the capital, you will be enchanted by the countryside full of vegetable gardens and landscapes dotted with fig and almond trees. El Pinar is found on the border of large pine forests and on its lower slopes the landscape is full of rugged volcanic ravines. It’s a town where El Hierro’s traditional rural way of life continues, focused around agriculture, farming and craft making.
Rural hotels where you can disconnect in El Hierro
From the Tanajara viewing point you get terrific views of the town of El Pinar, of the southern side of El Hierro, and also what is known as “Mar de las Calmas” (the Calm Sea), a marine reserve of tranquil waters. From here you are drawn to discover more, to wander through the streets of Taibique or Las Casas, feeling the relaxed vibes and way of life that pulses there. Many of the houses have been carefully restored and converted into rural hostels and hotels, perfect for reconnecting with yourself.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- 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.
- 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'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
