Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Lanzarote attractions like Los Hervideros can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The sea and the volcanic rock in the rough, this is the show proposed to Los Hervideros. An incredible powerful emerges from this place. The sounds of the sea who rushes into the petrified lava caves are sometimes disturbing. A site to visit, cautiously even if the sea's a bit upset...

  • Lanzarote has a special charm, surprises with its disruptive nature and this part of the island (in its simplicity) is impressive! A "simple" lava nature cliff overlooking the ocean ... I suggest you simply Park your car (in front) and enjoy the scenery.

  • Lanzarote various prisons as many as I could on the bike. And it is not at all so far, you do not need to have a car to admire the charms of these beautiful islands, especially such places as Los Hervideros. A great place to enjoy the moment and musings on the magnificence of our planet.

  • My day visit to Lanzarote was a cloudy one but this place was still stunning. The walk ways are a little narrow but in a way that adds to the rugged nature of the place. The water in and around the caves was an odd and beautiful blue and I imagine even prettier on a sunny day. Also, I was told the place is even better when the wind is blowing the right way. Definitely worth a visit.
  • . Nature in Lanzarote is harsh, fierce. Witness the volcanos and the black stony land. Here we see not the power of fire but the power of the sea, waves crashing, foam spurting, salt-laden air whirling around. If you suffer from vertigo best to go with someone who will hold your hand. Not that it's unsafe, but you need to look down to get the full sight of the force of the ocean. There are several paths leading around a couple of inlets, to get different views, all good. Tip 1 If there is more than one coach in the carpark, give it a miss and come back another time. The narrow paths cannot cope with too many visitors. Tip 2 Time your visit so that you can go and have lunch up the road in the little village of El Golfo. :-) .
  • Stopped here on the way to El Golfo. Large car park right at the cliffs. The area itself is very unique and offers plenty of opportunities for stunning photos. The terrain is very rugged but there are paths making this suitable for everyone except maybe the very young or very old. 15 minutes is sufficient time to see the bulk of what is on offer here.
  • Excellent scenery and a really good way to understand the effects of a lava flow hitting the sea and the amazing geological formations that can happen. It's best appreciated on a blustery day when the tide is in and you get a real connection with the power and force of the sea. Great scenery and views.
  • Driving back from El Golfo to Playa Blanca we drove into here wondering why so many people were wondering about. We didn't have any idea what this place was and still don't. No signs, no information, nothing. Just lots of tourists taking photographs of the cliffs. Unless I'm i completely missing something it's just cliffs.
