Natural Pool Garachico

El Caletón in Garachico

One of the most beautiful natural swimming pools in Tenerife is El Caletón which is located in the beautiful Canarian village of Garachico. These volcanic pools in Tenerife are created by the last eruption of the Trevejo volcano back in 1700. It buried a lot of the Garachico town and as the lava reached the sea it formed these natural swimming pools, which are now one of the must-sees in Tenerife. 

One of the safest natural pools in Tenerife

The natural swimming pools of Garachico are one of the safest natural pools in Tenerife for swimming and even jumping off the rocks because the water is quite calm and there is a good overview of the area.
