When we found this place, it was hard to believe we were on the side of a very busy road! As it’s in a valley you are shielded from the sounds and distractions. Beautiful for a walk and a picnic! The water is really cold...More

This is a beautiful place for a visit. The only problem is that it is very popular during the Summer. Recommend it though.

Despite the proximity of the road from Bocairente to Ontinyent this little spot is very peaceful. It is a succession of plunge pools. There is a walkway alongside - and only 10s of meters above is the road - which I honestly didn't notice any...More

We went there on 23 October 2016 and found the place amazing but as we thought we could swim we realised that this was not possible as water not clean at all.

Beautiful place to visit where you can have a picnic. Great lake with cold water. But I don't advise to swim there - it's not so clean and it's a lot of people there swimming. There is a picnic zone there in the shadow, so...More

Beautiful spot to relax and cool off. Short steep walk down to pools but well worth it. Can be lots of teenagers there during holidays but all well behaved and pleasant. Despite that it doesn't feel crowded. Mornings are very quiet.

We visit Pou Clar every visit to Spain (we have family near Alicante) and I wouldn't have it any bother way. It's so beautiful, and the water is lovely and refreshing! We have visited other attractions that aim for what Pou Clar offers, and they...More

There are quite a lot of steps down from the car park although there is a good path along the water side.

No, I'm afraid access is via many steps and there are steps at various stages along the path.
