Very well run and well kept selection of pools, infact there is an area to suit just about everybody. There is also a cafe which serves a good variety of snacks and treats. Would like to see some greenery introduced, palms etc., to soften the harsh landscape. Very good value for all.

Cool place for swimming with kids in all ages. Great ocean pools (natural) along with regular pools. A nice little café with a stunning view.

These are the best outdoor swimming pools ever. The combination of natural sea pools and man made adaptations, pools and facilities are very well done. Really great cafe too. A fabulously day out.

Public baths - natural pools in the rock fronts - a nice visit during your stay and a short walk from the town

Interesting place - natural rocks / as a poll but the Atlantic is not realy warm enough for swiming. Good only if you like COLD water in July.

Worth a try if you have medusa jelly in the ocean otherwise pick one of the island sand beach. Some noise due to local regulars.

The natural pools were refreshing and clean. The lounge served some very tasty drinks and the staff was friendly and very helpful! Aside from the jellyfish in the ocean, this visit to the piscina was very memorable - so memorable plan to stay in Lagao next year just for the piscina!!

Thank Jonathan T
