Tenesar and its Charco de Los Hombres

One of Lanzarote's less-known coastal towns, Tenesar is truly a beautiful little spot to appreciate Lanzarote's western coast. Part of the municipality of Tinajo, Tenesar contains quaint houses and narrow streets with cute names (fun fact: most streets are named after sea creatures). 


A beautiful little place to get away from all of the noise and traffic of the island. Most Tenesar residents live in the town during the summer only, the number of barbecues, chairs, tables, and sunbeds represent the way of life in Tenesar...


Great company, great food, and even better views!


It doesn't stop there though! Tenesar's beautiful coast contains many natural pools (otherwise known as Charcones or Charcos) pssst if you haven't checked out my other blog post about Los Charcones, here's the link: https://www.lanzarotedigitalnomads.blog/2021/05/los-charcones-beautiful-natural-pools.html, and here's one of my favorite natural pools on the island:


El Charco de Los Hombres (which translates to Men's Natural Pool, p.s. it belongs to everyone regardless of your gender hahaha) is a lovely little spot to go for a swim. It's located at the very end of the dirt road (which is to the left of the town of Tenesar). 




All you have to do to get to this unique spot is go along the dirt road all the way to the end (where you'll have a little house on your left side facing the south of the island). Once you get there, there are a few steps carved from volcanic rock. After that, all you have to do is walk diagonally across the volcanic rock towards the Charco de Los Hombres. To all you engineers and mathematicians reading this, Its exact position is a perfect diagonal vector from the small house with green doors and windows (Facing inland). 



So whether a friend of yours has invited you to their house in Tenesar or not, go out there and explore!
