We walked from San Andreas along a very easy path with seating and stunning views to the natural sea bathing pools. Views were fantastic and the pools are easily accessed from the path and also from a nearby car park.

A very popular place to get the feeling of taking a bath in the sea, but without the risk of getting smashed against the Rocky shore frequented a lot by locals and tourists as well. Very nearby, but a bit less "crowded" is another place...More

Amazing to get close to the crashing waves and try and take them on as you hold on to the bars! Beautiful natural place, a real treasure

This place is truly beautiful the Natural salt pools are a little cold but welcoming. There are changing rooms at the top which cost 50 cents and a truly lovely beach bar/ cafe at the top. A must see and great experience!

Nice, natural salt water pools. They are chilly! Changing areas at top and there is a bar/cafe too where you can watch people below. Great scenery. The pools can be quite deep in places and they get fairly busy with people of all ages.

If you're only able to visit one of the natural pools, go to this one. Its less crowded and feels more natural. Plus a great little restaurant

We only had drinks at Charco Azul, and the view is beautiful. Fun watching the waves crash into the pool below. Everyone was friendly with the exception of the bartender who was very gruff, and it appeared his coworkers were treading very softly around him....More

I would check to make sure that you don't waste a trip here only to find that it isn't open. Having been here in April it was nice but definitely not very warm and it's doubtful that the water would be. Looks like an interesting...More

The coastline is very rough on this part of La Palma: no beaches, lava rocks and strong waves. The man made sea water pool is a great way to enjoy the ocean without danger. We didn’t go in the pool but it was interesting to...More

In April for me the water was too cold buy many people were swimming there. It depends on your temperature level tolerance.
