Jameos Del Agua is a subterranean collapsed lava tunnel, formed by volcanic explosions and running magma in the 1700's. Within the open air cave is a beautiful lagoon, where the Atlantic ocean has risen and pushed itself up through the rock. Blind albino crabs, seen usually in the deep ocean, live amongst these waters, creating the illusion of a beautiful starry night sky. There is a cafe at the entrance to the tunnel, along with plenty of chairs and tables to sit and enjoy a coffee and take in the view.
As you walk out of the main cave, you'll be greeted by the beautiful gardens designed by César Manrique. These gardens are home to the King of Spain's swimming pool, along with a grand auditorium and a gift shop.
Every Tuesday and Saturday night, in summer months, Jameos del Agua comes to life with live music, and a Dj session until 00:30.
Entrance to the cave during the day costs €9.50 for adults and €4.50 for children. A 20% discount is offered after 15:00h. We recommended planning between 1 - 1.5 hours to visit Jameos del Agua.
The attraction is easily accessible by car, and for those that don't drive you can visit as part of an organised trip such as the Lanzarote North Tour.
