One of Tenerife's most singular towns, on the northern coast, is peaceful, pretty, and unique in several key ways.

A tranquil coastal town known for its natural pools.

If you're really looking to 'get away from it all,' this quiet coastal town up north may be just the ticket. A good deal of its charm lies in its small size, limited by the steep slope on its south side. It was here that in the 18th century an eruption by the nearby Trevejo volcano buried the original town, giving the area its current appearance (you can climb uphill for a good look at the landscape). Back in town, strolling the streets and exploring the main square, Plaza del Ayutamiento, is a charming experience, and you should also take a look at the local fort, the Castillo de San Miguel, and its surroundings. When you spot some small sea inlets, check them out; Garachico's 'natural swimming pools' are one of its main attractions, with seawater constantly refreshed.
