El Hierro a Youtube success
El Hierro is moving with the times by using new technology to promote the charms of the island.
A new video channel has been unveiled on Youtube which takes the potential tourist on a tour of all its major attractions and scenic beauty. Sport is also highlighted, including swimming across the “Sea of Calm”, international paragliding and the Meridiano marathon.
Those who have already visited El Hierro have also posted photographs on their water experiences in El Hierro, considered one of the best places in Europe for under-water activities. This accolade demonstrates how well the island has bounced back since the submarine eruption of 2011.
Cabildo tourism councillor, Verónica Montero highlighted the importance of using the social network during the recent international tourism fair in Madrid.
“ElHierroTurismo” and “CabildoElHierro” are available free of charge – visit youtube.com/ElHierroTurismo ;youtube.com/CabildoElHierro
The island can also be found on Facebook, Flickr and Twitter where it already has more than 8,000 followers.
