Tourism in Lanzarote 

Amidst the myriad of captivating sights in Lanzarote, we've handpicked a selection that exudes a magnetic allure, blending culture and romance.  

  • JAMEOS DEL AGUA.Your Odyssey begins at Los Jameos del Agua.This natural wonder that shares its name with our esteemed retreat, Seaside Los Jameos Playa. Here, you'll step into a captivating world, where Lanzarote's essence is encapsulated in a volcanic tunnel adorned with an awe-inspiring saltwater lake. Its waters are home to a unique species, the island’s very own treasure: the blind crab. This cultural centre created by César Manrique also houses an auditorium and a restaurant.

  • TIMANFAYA. It’s the most iconic place on the island. Located in south-west Lanzarote, the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya, of volcanic origin, extends over more than 51 km2. It's an environment that ignites a unique sensation within each visitor — a pilgrimage to an alternate realm. Here, vegetation is scarce, and the stage belongs to over 25 commanding volcanoes, each with its own story to tell. Let yourself be captivated by the rocky formations such as the Caldera del Corazoncillo or the Montaña Rajada.

  • LOS HERVIDEROS. This cliff area, forged by the relentless passage of magma from the once-awakened Timanfaya volcano to the Atlantic Ocean, bestows one of the island's most breath-taking panoramas. From ‘Los Hervideros’, you can see different sea caves. But the true spectacle unfolds when waves embrace these ancient crevices, transforming the ocean's surface into a frothy cauldron of foam. This phenomenon is, in fact, the very essence of its name 'Los Hervideros,' which translates to "the boiling pots".
