Aguas verdes

An alternative swimming and relaxation spot in Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is synonymous with endless beaches of fine white sand. However, the west coast with its rougher seas hides some incredible treasures for those seeking something entirely different. Aguas Verdes, in Betancuria, is one such treasure, and is a perfect example of the many unspoilt natural pools found in the Canary Islands: six kilometres of pools dotted along the coastline, where the priority is relaxing and escaping from any traces of the human rat race.
Excursions and unspoilt rock pools in Betancuria
The nearest evidence of human life to this collection of natural pools is the road which takes you nearby and the dirt paths that lead you to the pools. Don’t be surprised to find local squirrels as you make your way to the pools, and look out for the large crabs that inhabit the rocks. A swim in these clean, warm waters is the icing on the cake of this alternative excursion in an island renowned for its beaches.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the water.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants from the environment.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not use soap or gel in the showers.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.) or activities that might be bothersome, such as ball games.
- Pets are prohibited at many natural pools. Make sure you can take them beforehand.
