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.

Amazingly well set up. Think we'll spend...More

Loved it! Made me feel like a local and gave me the opportunity to swim in the ocean in a safe surrounding. It's old and a bit torn, but I like when things are not new and fancy. Showers, places to sun and a café...More
