Los Pocillos beach, Puerto del Carmen

Los Pocillos is a long beach stretching between Puerto del Carmen and Matagorda.



This is a nice long beach with plenty of room. At bigger high tides a lagoon forms.

The water is not very clear but is pretty safe for swimming. Some stone shelters at the South end can be found for windy days.

There are shops and bars nearby for drinks and snacks whilst on the beach.
