Los Hervideros - Lanzarote

Los Hervideros area is situated on the west coast of Lanzarote, close to El Golfo and Salinas de Janubio.

The name Los Hervideros translates to Boiling Waters and the place is a true spectacle of nature.

The landscape consists of several caves that are carved in lava. The ocean waves come crushing into the walls of the caves, flooding them and creating a magnificent, yet scary landscape.

You can walk around and admire the place from different points of view. The best in my opinion is the small balcony made of lava rocks, where you can see up close the waves.

When to visit Los Hervideros

The best time to enjoy the place is during high tides or in day when there are big waves.

Since the charm of this place depends on the power of the ocean, try to come at a time of day when there is high tide.

If you're looking for something extreme, then come and see this place during a windy storm. The water is angrier than ever and it is splashing several meters into the air.

You will find several stairs and pathways camouflaged into the landscape, so you can admire the place from different angles.

Personally, I truly enjoy coming to Los Hervideros. For me, it represents the pure power of nature and it's a unique place in Lanzarote.
