Los Hervideros

Do you want to witness an amazing spectacle of nature? Los Hervideros is just that. This stretch of bizarre-shaped cliffs is slightly north of the popular resort of Playa Blanca towards El Golfo and is visited by holidaymakers for the strange phenomenon on show.

This coastal area has an abundance of underwater caves produced by the solidification of lava and erosion. Los Hervideros refers to the amazing display that sees the waves force water into the labyrinth of caves with such a dramatic power it appears as if the sea is bubbling and boiling. Visitors can wander around pathways in the cliffs and watch the display below.

Sometimes, when the Atlantic Ocean is rough and producing heavy swells, sprays of seawater are forced several metres into the air accompanied by a roaring noise! An awesome sight!
