Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

4.5
#3 of 7 in Nature in Lanzarote
Geologic Formation Cave
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.

  • Nice to spend a short while around this area and take in the rugged coastline and watch as the waves crash into the sea caves.  more »
  • Visited here on our last day which was particularly breezy. Was in awe at the power behind the waves as they rolled into the craggy rock. Simply breathtaking. Great viewpoint too.  more »
  • Good place to stop and take in the views and see how the sea and lava have interacted over the years. Easy footpaths loads of parking and FREE  more »

  • 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.
  • The whole coast is beautiful. Plenty of spots to stop and enjoy lovely views.
  • Great view ... good idea to bring a picnic and listen and watch as the water crashes into the caves and cavans
  • Best to come on a stormy/windy day for the breathtaking waves! Very good sunset spot too!
