Well tended natural pools with a nice restaurant just above. Toilet and changing facilities available, really well thought out space. Great for snorkelling and seeing pretty fish and crabs. Main pool was a little choppy at times. Smaller pools had much calmer water. Loved spending...More

This was our favourite spot of the holiday. Lots of different pools to explore with fish in all of them. Some super safe for kids and one or two others more prone to waves. A great place to get sun, shade, snorkelling and food (though...More

Like La Palma itself, Las Piscinas de Fajana are stunning. A great place to relax after a walk, the water is crystal clear and full of fish. The rock walls make the pools safe for children. Those more adventurous can hop over the wall to...More

The views of the rugged coastline are spectacular from here.The sea water pools looked clean and easy to get into.There are a couple of bar restaurants and plenty of space to sunbathe.Parking could be a problem at peak times.

I was lucky enough to have the pools to myself, it was January and a bit cold, but it was exhilarating and well worth a visit. Spectacular surroundings, wear some non slip footwear, it's very slippery on places.

La Palma is a delight and this is an excellent bathing pool. The water is cool, clear, and very refreshing. Go there.

Good facilities, including toilets, changing cubicles and a restaurant. The approach road is short, but steep and well surfaced. The descent from the car park is reasonable but disabled will have difficulties getting all the way to the pools. There is a ramp down as...More
