Verodal beach

A gravel road to the virgin Verodal beach in Canary Islands

Located on the northwestern coast of El Hierro, the smallest and farthest south and west of the Canary Islands, Spain, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, Playa del Verodal is a red volcanic sand beach.

Nestled in almost virgin surroundings, the road to the beach is unpaved. It’s pretty narrow and can be busy in summer time. Starting from the popular HI-500 Road, the drive is 1.2 km (0.74 miles) long.

The drive offers truly spectacular scenery in volcanic surroundings. Some sections the road due to hazards related to the active volcanic are subject to sudden closure, and because of the dynamic nature of volcanoes, conditions can change rapidly. The sea here is rough and swimming is not recommendable due to its strong waves and currents.
