The north coast of Tenerife has been forged by lava flows and basaltic pyroclasts, and although much of its northern face is inaccessible, its volcanic character has adorned the north of the island with beaches full of charm. Among these are El Bollulo and Los Patos, as well as a collection of natural pools, including Charco de La Laja.
Charco de La Laja is protected by its own rock wall, and when the sea is calm, its crystal-clear waters are an invitation to swim, but on choppy days the waves crash with force, therefore it is important to be careful.
It is located in the town centre of San Juan de La Rambla, somewhat hidden at the end of some stone steps which drop down from the mountains.
