The unspoilt beaches
While El Hierro is the smallest of the the Canary Islands, it can boast some of the finest, and unspoilt beaches in the archipelago. The best beaches on the island are located along the south coast, with one of the best – and most popular – being Playa de Tacorón. Although there’s not much sand, the water is impossibly clear and it boasts particularly stunning surroundings. Head up to the Mirador de el Tacorón look-out spot for some superb panoramas, especially at sunset.
