Cueva del Agua, near Los Cocoteros, is a place on Lanzarote that you may not have heard of before but if you’re looking for your own private rock pool then it doesn’t get much better than this. We visited it last month.

The large rock pool is just off the beaten path at the end of Calle Amor Indiano. At the end of this track is a small property right by the coast. To the left of the property is a little dirt footpath that leads you towards the Cueva del Agua.

On a calm day the water in the large rock pool will be relatively still and a brilliant blue-green. You must be careful regardless of the weather, though. The descent is steep and it’s easy to lose your footing if you’re not steady on your feet. Additionally on a rough day the water currents can be very strong so you must be cautious.

Once you make your way to the bottom, you can leave your bags and towels high up on the rocks and make your way into the water. For those that like a challenge there is a rope which helps you up onto a rocky outcrop that you can dive from.

If you are planning to visit the Cueva del Agua, we’d recommend going at high tide on a day when the sea is not too rough.
