Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

4.5
#3 of 19 in Nature in Lanzarote
Discover underwater caves on the island of Lanzarote at Los Hervideros. Produced by solidified lava and erosion, this series of caves forces the incoming water to bubble and boil, creating dramatic sound and visual effects. Walk along the rock formations listening to the roaring noises and seeing the heavy swells enter the caves. Continue down the walking path, stopping at the viewing platforms for impressive vistas of the coastline and volcanic terrain. El Golfo village is only a short walk and boasts a number of nice cafes and restaurants.

  • The visit to these cliffs is worth. It is a joy to see how the waves break with all your strength on these cliffs. In addition different forms and galleries open by the force of the sea to the beat and that have been sculpting these cliffs are a marvel of nature. If you like photography, you will enjoy. And if you only go to wander and observe the landscape, you'll also love. As advice, wear the hair collected, makes a tremendous ire.

  • The landscape in this region is very special. The Black Rock and the reddish hills in the background look very nice. At Los Hervideros, the waves turn impressive on the lava rock.

  • How must that be only when the waves right coming from the West. It is not only a parking in the kilometre before that. Water slapping against the shore, splashing in fountains and breaks in white, turquoise, blue waves. Equal to the first parking lot our daughter could see what happens when you are close to ran's - five metres a brave was a shower.

  • A designated place to watch the breakers which flow in to areas of the rocks with viewpoints. As it is on a lava field the ground and viewing areas feel quite rough for those of a sensitive nature. Everyone we saw there, of all ages, seemed impressed so I would say go and enjoy the experience, it's free to boot, what more could you ask.
  • An inlet with caves/undercuts in the cliff which funnel in ocean waves which break dramatically. Carefully cut paths in the rock give access to get close to the action. With good parking, all free. An hour well spent.
  • Brilliant free attraction with paths set up to walk round and take pictures. We went on a particularly rough sea day which made it all the more breathtaking. Watch out as you may get soaked.
  • Unique place with stunning views!! The constrast between the lava and the sea is impressive, good spot for taking beautifully pics. Easy to park the car. No entrance fee.
  • Shocking waves against the coastal formations. It's amazing to feel the Earth's power in this place. Stones are so warm and the water is cold when the waves spread over your head... Best time to go there is at sunset. Best place for that.
