The natural pools of Los Chaconnes

Los Chaconnes is quite hard to reach because of the long dirt road that brings you there. You need a good car, or you have to walk for quite a while. If you are coming close to an old and abandoned hotel, you are on the right way. Los Charconnes is beautiful. However, they are not real pools, more some kind of puddles. Not the best place for swimming, but beautiful to take a few photos and walk around a little bit here.


Be aware that there is literally nothing over here. No bars, restaurants, or supermarkets, and only an abandoned hotel. Especially when it is warm, bring enough water and food with you!


Another beautiful natural phenomenon that is still for free! It’s almost impossible to imagine that there are still a few natural highlights you can visit for free, and Los Charconnes is one of them.


Los Charconnes is quite remote from all the other things in Lanzarote. Therefore, it is also quite difficult to reach. A long dirt road brings you to a sort of parking place, but you really need a good car for this. It is not really clear which path you have to follow, but if you see an old abandoned hotel, you are at the right place! To reach the puddles themselves, you have to climb on the rocks, so you need to be well on your feet.
