Lanzarote is popularly known as "the island of volcanoes" because of its great volcanic activity. An interesting fact that highlights its beauty is that it is a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO since 1993.
Timanfaya National Park, located in the area of Yaiza and Tinajo. It represents one of the best examples of volcanic habitat not only in the Canary Islands but throughout Europe. A place where human presence has been practically null. It has more than 25 volcanoes, some of the most famous being Montañas del Fuego, Montaña Rajada or Caldera del Corazoncillo.
Currently, they still have volcanic activity up to 600 degrees Celsius only 13 metres deep, and hot spots on the surface that reach up to 120 degrees Celsius. One of its attractions is the Islote de Hilario, where you can enjoy the effects of high temperatures watching how foods are cooked with the natural heat of the earth or seeing the effect of water on these underground bags at high temperature. A spectacle of nature that you can not miss!
Jameos, located in the town of Haría. These jameos are located inside the volcanic tunnel produced by the eruption of the ‘Volcán de la Corona’. The volcanic lakes tubes inside are in themselves very unique natural formations and a stunning beauty. Access to the interior of the cave is done by "Jameo Chico", below there are "Jameo Grande" and "Jameo de la Cazuela". Inside the cave we discover a natural lake of clear waters. It is noteworthy that here we find a kind of unique crab in the world. The crab (Munidopsis polymorpha) with just one centimetre long, albino and blind.
El Golfo Beach, located in Yaiza and close to the National Park Timanfaya. It is located in an open ocean which was formed following the eruptions that occurred in 1730. The volcano has created spectacular formations due to the effect of the passing of time. The sea goes through the crater forming a beautiful pebbled beach of black lava that will leave you open-mouthed. Perfect for relaxing and sunbathing. One of the peculiarities that you will see is the Laguna de los Ciclos, declared Natural Reserve. It has semicircle shape and green water (due to the algae that inhabit it).
