- Plenty of variety of restaurants, catering for all tastes, and shops. Weds and Sat markets are well worth a visit.Written August 5, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Relatively easy walk (about 45 mins up and half an hour down) that offers great views from all around the crater top.Written August 1, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A lovely, safe beach with clean water. Plenty to do at one end of the beach with water sports including jet skis and pedalos. Not particularly wavey but the sea gets deep relatively quickly but very picturesque.Written August 6, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We visited as a family of 3 on 2 occasions on our 2 week holiday, both times doing the half day ticket at 3pm.
The staff on the ticket desk were really friendly and helpful and an absolute pleasure to deal with.
The place isn't the biggest waterpark in the world so you need to appreciate what it has and don't expect the earth. What it does have is a nice choice of slides but some are a bit bumpy and do hurt a bit.
The wave pool and the lazy river were good too.
I agree that a few more inflatables are needed, but you can make do with what they provide.Written August 7, 2022
- You're not a scuba diver? Then, get started, or you'll miss this unique wonderful underwater museum. It's one of a kind and truly magical. This one was on my bucket list and I am so glad we visited this very special place.Written January 31, 2022
- First of all, do not follow Google maps Los Charcones if your by car. Just drive from the south to "Charcones (Piscinas Naturales)". Maps will show you the abandonded hotel (which in fact never acted as a hotel). You can leave the car on the tarmac road or drive carefully to the hotel building.
Very difficult to find the right pools however just keep on looking - apr.150-200m from the hotel south. Better to decend so that you see the pools right below you, easier for the dip. Clear calm water (noon) with some tropical fish, black & red crabs and sea urchins. Really beautiful & peaceful.
Due to the incorrect directions we had to walk apr. 5 km on a dirt road/1h (fast pace) there and back, but still worth it!Written December 28, 2021
- The sea walk seems to run right along the south coast (except for going round the port where development work in underway. Not too crowded and lots of nice landscaping round the hotels. The only drawback are the people trying to tempt you into their bars and restaurants every 5 metres.Written June 2, 2022
- Very quick and pleasant crossing.
A little more expensive, but if you're in a hurry....
Coffee was horrible.Written March 6, 2020
- Monday 10th January and we walked along Avenida (Paseo) Maritima from our hotel, H10 Timanfaya Palace Hotel to Playa Blanca Port, roughly a twenty minute walk.
We continued on past the Marina, we climbed up the steps to the top of the hill where this old castle is located.
It is known by a number of names including El Castillo o Torre del Aguila, according to the information board. Another name is Castillo de las Coloradas. Aguila is the Spanish word for eagle.
This circular stone structure was built in 1741 to protect the island from pirate attack and raids. It was rebuilt in 1769 having been destroyed by fire. It is the only defensive building on the south of the Island.
Although it us not possible to enter the castle, visitors can climb up the steps then cross the small drawbridge to the entrance door. There is a small hole in the door which visitors can peer though, not a lot to see.
On the top of the castle, not directly over the entrance, there is a small belfry which is topped by a cross. There is no bell there nowadays.
It is worth the climb up here firstly to see the castle and secondly to enjoy the views along the rugged coastline.Written January 28, 2022
- Some say it can only be found under the glimmer of a red moon, others say only once the sun is at its highest point and the wind blows in an easterly direction.
Some say you need to be there on the 7th day of the 7th month and stand atop the anker looking north westerly and to follow the signs
Others say you can only find what cannot be found until you are truly lost.
I say probably look during the day and look down at your feet, it is roughly 5-6 tiles from the left when the sea is to your right. Found it, rubbed it and have sold everything I own and invested it in bitcoin, let's hope the legend is trueWritten August 5, 2022
- Absolutely fantastic kids' club, the staff here are so caring and looked after my son brilliantly. A whole rota of different activities and the ability to 'drop in, drop out' as you wish. Thanks to the amazing men and ladies that work here and for keeping kids entertained and giving mum and dad a break. My son is still talking about it now and chanting the Kikohouse song! We will be back :-)Written July 28, 2022
- We stayed in a villa near this area so were able to take a stroll round which was enjoyable. However it is a windy part of the island!Written July 2, 2022
- My 6 year old spent 3 mornings of our holiday in Playa Blanca at the Elite Football academy. He really enjoyed it. The couch was very friendly and helpful.Written June 3, 2022
