A special attraction of the island is the diving. El Hierro counts as one of the most beautiful underwater paradises in Europe. You can find here many diving schools where courses for beginners are offered, equipment is rented or the owners of a diver's licence are taken to the best places on the ocean.

All year round the national Photosub competition takes place.

Anyone who wants to fly can do a tandem-jump with a paraglider flexwing and enjoy the view over the Golf valley provided the thermal conditions are right.

Once a year there is an international meeting of flexwing-jumpers on El Hierro.

To get as a tourist a fishing licence (validity 3 years in all Spain) you have to leave a photocopy of your passport and 14,10 € in the office. Then it is possible to go fishing land-based around the island.

Pure relaxation is guaranteed, based on the decision to spend time on this island – perfect for that purpose.

No multi-lane roads, no traffic lights, little traffic and no airplane noise, so there is, for normally stressed people sometimes an unbelievable silence. Only natural sound from wind, ocean waves, cock crows or sometimes a barking dog are balm for the soul.

Stargazers can admire the night sky directly. Because the air here is hardly polluted, the stars and the moon seem close at hand.

Many quiet locations invite you to dream, or there is at last enough time to read your favorite books.

For more intensive relaxation from daily routine you can take part on a yoga course with an expert Hata-Yoga-teacher; even if you do it only once or twice during your holidays.

Important: not during the Spanish school holidays

To feed your mind you can take an intensive Spanish- or English-course with a qualified German language teacher. Maybe one of your children wants to improve their marks next year.

 

Do you know a better place to practise your vocabulary than one of the many stunning Miradores (viewpoints)?
