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.

    Really nice place with 3-4 natural pools with water from 1.5-2m water is a bit colder but really nice overall. There are safeguards, a little shop and bathroom nearby. Be aware that around are only rocks so bringing a chair might be a good idea.

    Very beautiful and windy. Natural pools in connection to the sea. The kids loved when the waves hit the cliffs. Plenty of parking along a very small, bumpy road. Easy to miss the exit from the main road! Just drive slowly and it won't be a problem.

    Short beach with possibility to take a bath. I don't know 😕 there were better places to visit. Fir example hills behind the ocean. But for a quick tour? Perfect.

    Stunning natural bathing pools that are really well used and difficult to get photos of without strangers in them. Water is crystal clear you can see the bottom rocks and gravel and its a beautiful turquoise colour. Steps down to some of the bigger pools and lots of people sunbathing. Plenty of colourful crabs around on the rocks. Lots of big waves on the rugged coastline with cliffs in the distance and mountains behind and pretty coloured flowers. Their is a cafe/bar and toilets and plenty of carparking nearby.

    i love it, it feels like the 60’s, families coming with a picnic for the day. very chill, relaxed, bon enfant. yes, it’s windy, it’s probably easy to burn if you’re not using sunscreen. it’s a delicious spot.
