Los Tilos Forest and the Charco Azul Natural Pool

Calle Los Tilos, 38729, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain

Immerse yourself in a million shades of green on a journey through La Palma’s prehistoric laurel forest, Los Tilos. Hiking routes pass under waterfalls, into tunnels and over streams that transport you into a fairy tale. Greens fade into blues at Charco Azul, a natural pool along the coast and an easy stop on your way back to Santa Cruz. This is the island’s best natural swimming pool, where you can float peacefully in the turquoise sea thanks to the protection of natural rock walls (which block the waves and strong ocean currents).
