Tenerife´s Las Aguas means “The Waters”

Updated on June 21, 2013

The waters of Las Aguas

Las Aguas means “The Waters,” and this is a very apt name for a seaside village in the north of Tenerife. Las Aguas is just down the road from San Juan de la Rambla.

This road is attractively lined with tall palm trees on one side and it takes you straight down to the seafront. A conspicuous banana plantation and traditionally terraced farmland are on its other side.

Swimming pool

However, unless you knew about it, Las Aguas is one of those tucked away places that it is easy to miss. This would be a great shame because it is really worth visiting.

The beach is mainly composed of volcanic rocks and pebbles and also has a very tiny islet just out in the sea. Although the beach isn’t much good for swimming and sunbathing there is a “piscina” saltwater public swimming pool at the end of the road. So there are two lots of water – the water in the ocean and the water in the swimming pool, and the name of the village is correct!

Right by the swimming pool stands a café and bar and you can also choose from a range of restaurants along the rest of the seafront.

The Tenerife coast you can view from Las Aguas stretches up towards Puerto de la Cruz in one direction, and the main road and high rocky cliffs overlook the village and its beach and pool.

Las Aguas’ neighbour, San Juan de la Rambla, is an equally charming coastal town with plenty of Canarian architecture in its houses and buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries

The focal point of San Juan de la Rambla is probably the Church of San Juan Bautista (John the Baptist), who is its patron saint.

It seems very apt that the church for John the Baptist is right next to Las Aguas where people could be baptised literally in its waters.

San Juan de la Rambla is on the main road to Puerto de la Cruz, the road that goes along the coast coming up from Icod de los Vinos. It is your next stop after passing El Buen Paso and Santo Domingo.

Several of the TITSA bus services stop at San Juan de la Rambla so it is easy enough to get off ones of these and stroll down the road to Las Aguas.

Of course, it is possible to view Las Aguas from the main road above too and it looks the sort of place that would tempt you to want to visit it.
