Natural pools in Tenerife, another treasure near Abama Resort

Natural pools near Abama Resort

That Abama Resort compares favourably with any of the luxury tourism complexes in Europe is something you confirmed as soon as you arrived here. We’re sure that the quality and the variety of our services, the incredible sport facilities and the unparalleled views around our exclusive residences haven’t passed unnoticed. But perhaps what you didn’t know about was the incredible number of natural treasures our island holds. The exotic landscapes of the volcanic coast meet the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, offering special places that you won’t find anywhere else on Earth. One example is Tenerife’s many natural pools.

The coast of the island is dotted with an infinite number of natural reservoirs or pools where water enters through the irregular formations of the volcanic rocks. These natural spaces have escaped the influence of man and may be the perfect place to take refuge from the world.

Here are some of our favourite and most beautiful natural pools on Tenerife. We’re sure they’ll provide temptation enough to leave the comforts of your luxury home at Abama:

El Charco del Viento in Santa Catalina, La Guancha

An hour away by car, this is a group of 4 natural pools in La Guancha that are easily accessible. Parking is relatively easy and at your destination you’ll find a beach bar, an area for sunbathing, and very pretty sandy areas. The waters are calm and possessed of great natural beauty, making them the perfect choice for enjoying a day at the beach with the whole family.

El Caletón (Garachico – North)

Declared a destination of interest within Tenerife, El Caletón is also an hour away by car, just next to the Castillo de San Miguel (dating to the XVI century). It’s presided over by the imposing presence of a famous rock, the symbol of the eruption of Garachico in 1706. Because it’s an area of pure lava, it’s a landscape that looks like no other. It also offers plenty of services, making it ideal for a day trip.

Piscinas de Bajamar (Santa Cruz de la Laguna – Northeast)

Next to its lovely sand beach, some 90 km from Abama Resort, there are two large natural pools and one smaller one, perfect for children. Located in a protected area, there is a water park, both natural and safe, and there are numerous restaurants in the immediate area. It provides easy access thanks to the numerous ramps and railings that have been built.

Charco de la Araña (Puertito de Los Silos – Northwest)

This is one of those enigmatic natural pools, located less than 40 km from your residence, that appears at low tide and disappears again when the ocean washes back in. Beautiful surroundings and a marvellous landscape with the Acantilados de La Culata make this part of the coast the perfect spot to travel lovely walking routes after a relaxing day at the beach.

Charco de la Laja (San Juan de la Rambla – Northwest)

Located in the middle of San Juan de la Rambla, one of the most beautiful areas of Tenerife with one of the best microclimates, and only an hour away by car, the Charco de la Laja offers an otherworldly volcanic landscape made of lava rocks. In terms of its facilities, it offers a sunbathing area, three bars, and numerous restaurants.

Piscina Natural de El Pris (Tacoronte – North)

A bit farther away (you’ll have to drive for a bit more than an hour), this pool has a dark sandy beach. Located in the midst of a very active area, its waters are always crystal clear thanks to the refreshing ocean waves that enter constantly. Close to the natural pool there are various bars and restaurants that serve fresh fish.

Piscinas Naturales de Mesa del Mar (Tacoronte – North)

Also a ways away, the grouping of the Natural Pools of Mesa del Mar, located on the coast of Tacoronte, is our last recommendation. It has two pools, one of which can only be used in summer months, and the other that is full year-round. There is a nearby parking area with easy access, an area for children, and a wooden constructed area that can be used for sunbathing.

The offer is varied and broad, so all you need to do is choose the natural pool that best adapts to your needs and the day in the calendar you want to have an adventure. Plan your day, choose among the broad range of charming restaurants that you’ll find on your route and get ready to experience the exuberant nature of the Canary Islands archipelago. It’s one of the true benefits of living at Abama Resort.
