Lanzarote’s Natural Pools

Lanzarote is an island surrounded by wild and virgin beaches with little waves. Some of these beaches have such calm water that they resemble natural pools. The breakwaters and solidified lava on part of the coast have also caused the formation of pools and puddles on the seashore where visitors can soak and forget about time. Here are some of the most recommended natural pools and puddles in Lanzarote:


Los Charcones:

Los Charcones Lanzarote

These are the most photographed pools in Lanzarote, located on the southwest coast of the island, not far from Playa Blanca. They are a set of natural bathtubs created by the erosion of strong waves on the solidified volcanic lava. Accessing them is not easy, but they are worth the prize. Visitors can park at an abandoned building, the Hotel Atlante del Sol, and then walk down the cliff to access the pools.


The natural pools of Punta Mujeres:

Located on the northeast coast of Lanzarote, Punta Mujeres is a fishing village with a rocky coastline that features small breakwaters and stairs leading to some natural pools. The water comes directly from the sea, so visitors can see some fish swimming next to them when they submerge their heads.
