How to get to Los Charcones

As we mentioned before, Los Charcones is located on the coastline, between the Pechiguera Lighthouse and the Janubio salt mines, in the southwest of the island of Lanzarote. Furthermore, it’s very close to the town of Playa Blanca, our starting point to show you the way to Los Charcones.


The best way to enjoy these natural pools starts from the Avenida Faro de Pechiguera, following the road for about 2 kilometres, until you reach the old abandoned hotel, where you can leave your car.



It’s important to drive carefully along the route, as the road conditions are quite poor. Once you reach the ruins of the old Charcones hotel, simply head towards the coast to begin to appreciate the various pools that decorate this stretch of coastline.
