Bajamar is a coastal town in the municipality of San Cristóbal de La Laguna. A unique place with a very special charm.
On the town’s seafront promenade you can find some magnificent natural pools next to the sea, next to a small beach with calm waters if you prefer to enjoy the sand.
The accesses to the bathing areas are adapted for the elderly and people with reduced mobility, with ramps to be able to overcome the different stairs and unevenness.
The pools are filled with water that enters directly from the sea. Sometimes and depending on the state of the tide, the waves themselves break and enter the parts of the pool closest to the sea. This is one of the main attractions, either to see it from a distance or to get closer and let the fresh water from the sea impregnate and wet you.
Around the pools there are large terraces to place your towels and belongings.
