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.

  • Perhaps one of the most beautiful places I've visited in Lanzarote. The seething of ocean water is gorgeous, breathtaking view so much that I don't know how many photos I snapped with cellphone trying to shoot more images and emotions. The Ocean has carved into volcanic rock of craters and caves where the power of water goes in and out with shocking effect

  • Place of extraordinary environment, where the sea of lava empties into into the sea, forming cavities that breaking the waves give their name of "hive". The area itself is very adapted to the tourist trails, viewpoints, etc... what takes away part of its wild and unspoiled charm. It is almost better as a landscape with the volcanoes in background, the sea of lava, and the cliff.

  • The lava field formations are already great to look at, the different shades can be seen. If but then breaks down the water in the cave and squirts up to top an impressive such force has that's just fascinating to watch is. It was not crowded and you could indulge fully the natural spectacle. I find an absolute must if you are ever on this island. Wind is very helpful at this point, because the actors are the waves, however grandiose scenery as one must admit

  • 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.
