The Garachico pools are one of northern Tenerife’s natural wonders. They were formed in 1706 by the solidified lava flows from a volcanic eruption which ravaged most of the town. The town was able to recover and today it is one of the most beautiful and popular corners of the island.
The pools are found below a promenade which stretches along the length of Garachico, in an area known as El Caletón, where the harsh northern coastline has been adapted to allow for access.
Water gently flows into the pools practically all year round, resulting in clear waters and an inviting setting for a swim, however you should be careful when the waves are choppy.
