History of the Hervideros of Lanzarote
The Timanfaya’s eruptions of XVIII century, affected Lanzarote, above all in the west coast.
The Hervideros originated by a curious phenomenon. The eruptions were so strong and intense in this zone of the island, that they reached the sea.
Great and high lava languages reached the sea. The contact of the incandescent lava with the sea water produced a rapid cooling of the lava, giving rise to these impressive formations.
The erosion generated by breaking the waves created a series of cliffs and under them caves and holes.

Maybe you are wondering why this volcanic formation that belongs to the Geoparque of Lanzarote are so special.
The Hervideros of Lanzarote offer an incredible natural show. The waves break against the cliffs and the water sneaks through the holes formed by the erosion. Then leave from the cavities and reach the sea through some of the holes, forming a lot of foam and a great noise.
The water columns arrive to reach some meters high upon the surface, creating an impressive show.
When water meets the earth, it generates a strange sound that remember boling water. This is the origin of the name.
