Like every August we are scorched. The city empties, the children are restless because of the heat, and almost all of us are desperately looking for a place to cool off during this month. If you're tired of sitting by the fan and want to get out of the house, here we have five bathroom spots to cool off.
All of these bathing places are far from normal, they are not crowded beaches, but their waters have the same quality, and they offer multiple options for all members of the household.
1. Marina de la Cervera
Located in the community of Madrid, this area has fun options for the whole family. Apart from cooling off in the waters of the Atazar reservoir, we can delight in the spectacular landscape, take hiking routes of different levels of difficulty, or rent equipment to practice water sports.

2. Leça da Palmeira Swimming Pools
These pools from the neighboring country are an ingenious construction located next to the ocean, so the views are unmatched.
Although they can be visited throughout the year, we recommend doing so during these hot months, which is the only time bathing is allowed. This construction designed to harmonize with the natural environment, has changing rooms, a cafeteria, a children's pool and a pool for adults.
They are easy to access, and a perfect option if you are thinking of visiting Porto in the coming weeks. The cost of admission varies depending on the day, costing eight euros (for adults) during the weekend.
3. Charco de la Olla
Don't be fooled by the name, it's nothing like a puddle, in fact, it is one of the most important natural pools in Extremadura. If this summer you are going to spend a few days in this Autonomous Community, or are simply passing through, and you feel like taking a dip, don't hesitate, visit the Charco de la Olla.
Charco de la Olla is located in the Hurdes area, well known for its beautiful landscapes and the extreme heat it endures in summer. So in addition to enjoying this beautiful natural attraction, you will have the possibility of getting to know the nearby towns, such as Ladrillar, a beautiful municipality in which the traditional architecture of the area stands out.

4. Ardales Beach

In addition, free-use tables have been set up in the area, where you can enjoy an outdoor picnic.
5. The beaches of Zaragoza
They are known by this name, although they are really high quality pools in which to enjoy an unforgettable “beach” day. The peculiarity of these immense pools is that they are surrounded by sand, palm trees, and that within this area, you will feel as if you were next to the sea.
It is a privileged environment that both adults and children can enjoy, for the price of five euros, in the case of adults; and three and fifty, for children. Additionally, you can pay a supplement to improve the experience by renting a hammock.
