Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

4.5
#3 of 13 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.

  • An unexpected gem! This was a great visit with the kids, who also loved it. Spectacular views and explorations...a great 'free' activity.
  • This is definitely worth a visit. The views are amazing and the little walk along the top of the little caves is brilliant. There are place where you can actually see where the rock cooled as it was flowing. Fascinating. Go when theres a decent breeze if you can and the waves hitting the rocks is awesome.
  • Beautifull sights... You see how strong water actually is, in real life!
  • Cool waves and rocks. You will want to visit this place on a windy day to get the biggest of waves. The path that you can walk on through the rocks helped to get a good view, however there is not loads of space. Pretty cool though.
  • Nice place to spend 20 minutes walking around. I wouldn't go too far out of your way to visit. The waves hitting the caves are impressive. We were 15-20 minutes away having just done the volcano tours, and I think all four of us were glad to have visited.
