Aguas verdes - An alternative treasure in Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is synonymous with endless white-sand beaches. However, the west coast, with its rougher seas, houses some incredible treasures for those seeking something entirely different. Aguas Verdes in Betancuria, is the perfect example of the many unspoiled natural pools found in the Canary Islands: six kilometres of pools dotted along the coastline, where the priority is to relax and to chill-out.
Charco del Conde - The most family-friendly natural pool in La Gomera
If you're looking for the quieter bathing spot for kids in La Gomera, this is definitely your place. At high tide this pool, located in Valle Gran Rey, provides a pleasant lake for all ages to enjoy. When the tides start to ebb away, children can have loads of fun in a pool that is always protected from the open seas.
Charco del Viento - Swim with views of Teide in Tenerife
If your idea of a great day out is to admire lava flows bathed by the ocean creating natural pools, then you're in luck. You can find four of these pools in Charco del Viento. This is the most popular swimming area in La Guancha and one of the best known in the north of Tenerife. Even though the force of the sea enters at times, the beauty and contrasting natural colours of this area allow safe bathing in different parts, with some sandy areas and rocky parts ideal for sunbathing. Don't forget to check out the magnificent Teide views just behind you!
La Fajana - Three delightful natural pools in the north east of La Palma
There are many beautiful natural pools in the Canary Islands but few like these three, where you can easily jump from one to the other. One of the best examples of it can be found in Barlovento. The paths that circle these three pools allow you to move quickly and bathe in the crystal-clear waters without being in the open sea.
