A swimming spot for all the family in one of Tenerife’s charming towns
The Atlantic has arms that soothe and the area of El Caletón, in the north of Tenerife, more than proves it. Just beside the San Miguel Castle (16th Century) and with the imposing presence of the famous rock, symbol of the Garachico eruption of 1706 when this was the most important port in Tenerife, this area of pure lava offers the perfect combination of open sea and calm large rock pools for the whole family, just metres away from all the services you need for a lovely day out.
Bathe in El Caletón de Garachico
Swimming in El Caletón isn't just about recharging your batteries in the salt water; it also offers you the chance to see a part of one of the most beautiful historic centres of the Canary Islands, with the spectacular La Culata cliffs and views along the rest of the northern coastline. There are lifeguards during the summer, a restaurant on the lava itself, parking facilities, a public swimming pool next door, a beach nearby, the new port and numerous fabulous places to visit, where you can eat or shop. Everything you could ask for in one delightful spot.
