The artist Cesar Manrique has developed this special place in a very tasteful way. There is a very small cafe, but no major distractions from the beauty of the place Small white blind crabs are to be found in the water here. The caves are sometimes used for music concerts.

We used a cloudy day to visit the caves. My 9 yr old loved it and it was quite good to see the lava caves. I felt the groups were too big and often the tours were in two languages meaning that some people talked once their language had been done, making it difficult to hear what the tour guide... More

If you like caves then this place is for you. Created by lava flows, the guide explains when and how it happened. Around 40-50 mins walking and talking time. try and go as early as possible because the que takes time to go down if you go mid flow.

The caves are beautiful and the tour was fine, although we had a huge group which was not really beneficial to the tour. Sometimes a bit chaotic. However, a must see when you visit Lanzarote.

The cave tour is 1km long and is really fascinating. It is great value for money. I think it was 9 euro/ person. You should definitely visit it

Small part of the volcanic caves on display, amazing to see and be a part of. Tours are well done and explained. Be sure to buy a group package of tours for discounted prices on all the island attractions. tours enter every half hour so the wait is not too bad unless there are large groups of people. Easy and... More

Visited the caves yesterday. In hire car, easy to find and free parking opposite the entrance. Toilets on the car park before you go over, coaches park near the toilets. €9 each adult and had 10 minute wait for guide. Quite a large group of us with varying abilities and the entrance steps are quite steep so sensible shoes and... More
