Los Hervideros

Natural spectacle created by the crashing of the sea into the volcanic rocks

Los Hervideros are found on the west coast of Lanzarote, between the Salinas de Janubio and Charco de los Clicos.

A Natural Spectacle

It is a relatively popular area thanks to the natural spectacle created by the crashing of the sea into the volcanic rocks, that were formed during the eruptions of what is now Timanfaya.

The waves break violently against the volcanic rocks that characterise the landscape, with the water seeping through the small cavities in solidified magma until it reaches the surfaces and shoots out as if it were boiling water.

The strange and striking nature of the phenomenon have made it a unique natural spectacle, although it can be dependent on the tides.

Near Los Hervideros

You can complement your visit with a trip to the peculiar Charco de los Clicos, located just south of Los Hervideros (hotspots). The small town of El Golfo is just here and is where you can taste the best fresh fish on the island. A little further south is the impressive Timanfaya National Park – a must-visit.

If you head north, you’ll be met with the Salinas de Janubio and the magnificent viewpoint nearby.
