I really like this place, beautiful views, many cafes and restaurants, natural water, very beautiful color, there are disadvantages, a lot of people, but what to do, everyone wants to relax. I recommend visiting

So before coming to Tenerife I thought this place would be the only natural pools (typically called in Carribbeans "Queen's Baths") on the entire island... but the truth is there is tone of them all over the island's coastline!

What makes these unique is that they are actually in the middle of the small touristy town, next to a "small castle" (Castillo de San Miguel), nearby a big and flat free public parking lot, and with all of the stores/shops/restaurants within super short walking distance... oh and they are free and there is even a a small "flatter strip" where you can lay "as if you were you chilling on a beach" if the actual "rocky natural pools" arent your thing! The pathways are cool too and you can take a nice scenic walk - though you need to return to the main entrance either way as there is no second entrance/exit.

So come prepared, take a towel and sunscreen and enjoy this experience as if you were coming to a beach - the sung is strong when it hits you so apply the sunscreen :)

TIP: you can come here just to watch and wonder around the town but also to spend quite a chunk of your day so plan accordingly - the parking is free and unlimited time so that's one worry less - it's super closer walking distance, I have attached the pictures here so you can see which "big lot" I am talking about as its behind big walls that look like you are not allowed to cross at first :) on google maps it appears to be a soccer field but in reality it's a big parking lot that you enter right behind the "goal" from the east via another parking lot.

Stunning area of natural rock pools. Some are shallow and some very deep, so something for everyone. We were able to go in for a swim. Lots of crabs. Restaurant on site.

Visited the Piscinas Naturales El Caleton in Garachico. The pools looked lovely was only able to sneak a paddle as the tour guide was adamant that anybody wet wouldn't be allowed back on the coach

Natural rocky pools where you can take a dip in the sea waters. In winter and in bad weather they are closed but still fun to watch the waves crushing to the area.

Red flag today meaning no bathing, which was disappointing. Whilst it was close to low tide when we arrived, the tide had turned, but it didn't look like the flags would be changed. Shame it doesn't give any more information on a website before making the trip, or maybe we just missed it. Another time - they look fun.

Beautiful area where you are able to spend some time swimming. Best not to go at ebb, as some of the pools become empty. Should you not spend some time swimming the views are stunning as well

We visited Garachino yesterday (Sat) and the natural pools were not accessible (were taped). The only stairs to the sea open were to the shallow public beach on the side. Reason not clear. Either season or coronavirus.

Went in October still during covid but reservations are not needed anymore, tape has also been removed. Very nice natural pools, nicest we could find on the island and the village is charming.
