These are a chain of pools (lagoons) varying in size over quite a large area.Some have beaches and there is no shortage of bars and restaurants. There is boating activities in some. And lots of swimmers and picnicers.

Perfect visit for a hot summer day! I would say a car is required to access the lagunas. Almost all of them are very shallow this year. They waters are a nice green blue colour, and they are not overly busy like a typical beach!

Fantastic location with beautiful scenery around every corner. Great wildlife to be seen too with birds in the trees and deer in the hills.

great lakes but too many people and bars along it and not enough nature. Accommodation was lacking too in terms of being in nature and views of nature

We live on the Costa Blanca so thought going here in April would be ideal after the winter rain etc. What we found was that being 900m high and inland, the seasons are two months behind the Coastal Costa Blanca, hence they still had log...More

Hot sun and chilly water - a perfect combination. The water is turquise-blueish. Lovely sights include waterfalls and rocks along the water. Have been there 2 times in 2010 and 2015 - both in May-June period - not so crowded then. Definitely worth stopping by...More

Wonderful for scenery, the natural lakes with their connecting waterfalls are a delight. Walking, driving, water sports (in season), this area should be so much better known.

Hi there maybe a bit late. You can take a daily bus from Madrid to Ruidera from Mendez Alvaro bus station in Madrid. You can check in the station website, the company running this service is Samar.
