A must visit attraction for anyone visiting Lanzarote. Although it is positioned in the very North of the island it is well worth the trip. Cesar Manrique's influence has transformed the natural beauty of the area into something very special and the exhibition centre is very informative.

Visited this beautiful spot as part of the Grand Tour (which we booked through Low Cost Travel and was an excellent day out with knowledgeable tour guides and a decent lunch!) Worth a visit to see this unique place, and the hundreds of blind albino crabs in the water.

Loved our visit here. We found this a very informative place. Very well maintained. Very clean toilets. Food in cafes was delicious. The gardens took your breath away. All in all well worth a visit. I'd go again and again.

We stopped here on a full-day tour of the island. Would love to go back and spend more time exploring everything more fully, especially the museum with interesting exhibits about volcanoes and the history/culture of Lanzarote. Get there early before the dozens of other tour buses arrive! And don't fall into the water trying to photograph the white crabs.

This is an interesting place to have a cafe, in a cave, yet in the sun. Look carefully to see if you can find the blind white crabs in the clear salt water. The cavernous theatre area is quite spectacular and well worth the trip. Lots of people miss this as it is not obvious that it is there.

Not being one to gush over architecture and art generally I was very taken with this place and If you are visiting Lanzarote put this place near the top of your list for a visit. This attraction is on the north east coast and as you approach it is a quite unprepossessing site in a bleak landscape. But most of... More

Jameos Del Agua is a very nice place to visit. Combines nature with art, generating a relaxing place to visit. Recommended to visit if you visit the nearby Cueva de los Verdes.

Visited as part of an island tour and thought the whole place very tranquil and relaxing. Lots of different levels all with lots of interesting plants and flowers. Might be difficult for disabled visitors.

It's another project of Cesar Manrique, a local artist who influenced the island. We had to chose between two caves and Jameos Del Agua was said to be a better choice. Indeed, it's spectacular. Built in a lava cave is a home of an auditorium, a cafe and a volcanic museum. It's a pleasure to walk through the cave and... More
