Los Hervideros, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

The Basics

While the landscape makes for remarkable photo opportunities, the real highlight of visiting Los Hervideros is watching the waves crash against the coast. Looking out from the cliff top, you can witness water funneling through spillways, which sends spurts of sea water roaring into the air.

Many full-day tours of Lanzarote include a stop at the spectacular sea cliffs, along with Timanfaya National Park and Los Jameos del Agua. To capture the best photos of this natural wonder and other scenic spots, opt for a photo safari during the evening golden hour.

When to Get There

The best time to visit these coastal cliffs is during sunrise or sunset, when lighting is best for photography and crowds are less concentrated. Plan to visit on a clear day when the sun brings out the blues of the ocean.

What to Do in El Golfo

Los Hervideros is just along the coast from the seaside village of El Golfo. Combine your trip to the sea cliffs with a stop at the village; sit down for an alfresco lunch of freshly caught seafood while soaking up the views of the sea and stop at the Charco de los Clicos, a bright-green lagoon that gets its color from the algae that grows on the bottom.
