Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

#3 of 21 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.

  • Very nice marine place, where the ocean meets the lava. Caves have formed, and the sea is blowing in with superb! In the distance, the beautiful colors of Timanfaya, and a few kilometers from the village of El Golfo quiet and secluded.

  • A very nice view of natural "caves". The contrast between the sea and the black stone floor is very beautiful.
