October might not be the best time to try to swim there, but it is a spectacular view. We took some really great pictures here. I wish I could try it out during the summer.

These rock pools are accessed by paths and are used by local and visitors alike. The pools are protected from the strong waves although there are tidal surges. There is also a normal swimming pool close by if you are not a confident swimmer. There...More

These naturally formed tidal pools get a lot of active surf action and surges. If you can brave the rocks and water and are a decent swimmer, you can enjoy a great time floating amidst a naturally beautiful setting. We opted to watch a dozen...More

After some days on the beach we were happy to have some diversity! Some concrete walkways, be careful not to slip. They have different pools, one especially for kids. Some cliffs you are allowed to jump off which is a lot of fun!

The natural pools have been enhanced with walkways and shady areas, making this a destination not only for swimming, but for strolling in the evening, to watch the waves come in. A note of caution for families - its easy to lose sight of a...More

If you visit Garachico, a swim in the Caletón is a must. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited!

Go snorkeling here!! If you get into the sea at the biggest pool and start swimming outwards, you will see dozens of types of fish, crabs and sea urchins. All these are among spectacular rocks. Be careful, the waves are strong!

We went midweek. It wasn't crowded. Parking was easy in the backstreets. What a wonderful place this is - beautiful and it was so much fun jumping into the water (which is extra bouyant), and then enjoying the rise and fall of the sea. The...More

Found out about Garachico & the pools through watching Korean reality TV, Youn's Kitchen. The pools are pretty cool as they are creates by volcanic rocks. It's really busy though so can get pretty oppressive. There are a couple of changing sheds and a shower....More

If it is open for swimming, depends on weather and tide. It can be closed on short notice if the life guards say so. But since it is already quite cold in summer, I could imagine that it is even colder in winter, and you may... More

Sorry, I'm not sure as I was there in the summer. You can check the weather on the day but you are not allowed to swim if there is a wind. When we were there, the wind was strong and no-one was able to go in specific area... More
