Las Salinas natural pools

Las salinas

The natural pools of Agaete popularly known by the name of “Las Salinas” are formed by three natural volcanic pools connected by submarine tunnels. They are protected from the waves especially at low tide and allow to observe some of the marine fauna of the area that enters the pools during the full tide.

It is a quiet place to spend the day, ideal for families with children as it allows the little ones to swim and have fun. They are easily accessible by walking from the Puerto de las Nieves but also have a direct access by the car.

    A hidden gem from tourists. If you can travel there, don't hesitate. Road is a gravel path off a roundabout, ample parking down the gravel path. Scenes are fantastic. Great vibe. Swimming was obviously the best part. They also have toilets to change in if needed.

    What a fab find, I just loved this place! Turn off down a tiny unmade road off the roundabout and then take it steady on the bumpy track until you see the end and you can park up. There's toilets, a friendly snack bar and lots of pools to swim in. I enjoyed wandering around watching the big red crabs clinging to the rocky edges and the waves spraying over the pools. This is so much better than rows upon rows of sun loungers. And it's all free!

    Beautiful natural pools with an amazing landscape and view. Nice to swim in but you have to be careful when switching between the different pools as there aren’t always ladders.

    Great series of natural ocean pools. Water slightly warmer than open ocean. Pools situated overlooking ocean alongside beautiful cliffside. Free public washrooms but bring toilet paper. Family friendly excursion, though road leading down to water a little rocky and rough. There’s a bar but it was closed when we went. Some people snorkelling, water very clear to rocky bottom but not too many fish. Bring something comfortable to sit on, rocks quite jagged. Water sandals would be helpful here.

    Beautiful scenery and cool spot to swim, but the water was very cold.
