Los Hervideros, Lanzarote
(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Sea caves below the edge of the lava field with a lot of wave action. Best to go on or after a stormy day. 
  • We've been coming here on and off for 15 years. The views and crashing waves are spectacular. However, every time we come back it seems another bit is roped off or fallen into the sea. This year my 5 ...  more »
  • It is a simple paved through the Middle route of the rocks that takes you to a couple of balconies from which to see the waves breaking against the cliff. Luckily that is free.

  • 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.
