Charco Azul Seawater Swimming Pools (Camino del Melonar, San Andrés y Sauces) — Charco Azul is a set of saltwater swimming pools along the promenade at El Melonar, between the village of San Andres and Puerto Espindola, located in a semi-urban area. The natural coastline is rocky, and the sea is frequently very rough, but inside the fenced pools, the water is always calm and safe. There are three pools: a large one, a small one for children, and a rock pool known as the “Charca de las Damas”. Since this is one of the most popular bathing areas in the north of the island, it has plenty of amenities: a Red Cross station, showers, toilets, changing rooms, and sunshades. It also has a bus service and a big car park. Free admission. Hours vary.
