visited this as part of a day excursion. A wonderful unique spot worthy of an hour or so of a visit. Definitely not a full day out. Be prepared for stairs and uneven natural paths.

A must to visit if your sightseeing around this island, a very cleverly created oasis in volcanic rock.

Cesar Manrique, the artist, left such a legacy to his home island of Lanzarote and one of the most amazing sights is his vision of the lava tunnels at Jameos del Agua. He sympathetically developed and enhanced the natural beauty of the area into what I feel, is a naturalistic work of art. It really is "other worldly" and should... More

This was very disappointing - essentially a small pond, admittedly with the fascinating and unique crabs, and an artificial swimming pool in which swimming is not allowed. There is a reasonably good vulcanology museum, but for the 9Euro entry fee I didn't think it worth it.

this is a cesar manrique creation set in lava tunnels and is included in many tours. however if you go by yourself it is 9 euros to get in but worth every cent!, i won't go into details as it would spoil the fantastic surprise you are about to experience if you go.

Such a stunning place and it was raining the day we visited. Well worth a visit. It has to be seen to be appreciated. Coming out of the cave to the pool is something I'll never forget.

This really is a beautiful place and worth a visit. But make sure you check out the volcano museum before you leave. Take the time to slowly wonder around this stunning place. From the entrance itself, to the beautiful pool, to the music hall, and the cool little hidden places, you wont be disappointed visiting here. Oh and the teeny... More

What a wonderful place to visit. It is a cave, it is a lagoon, it is the place where albino crabs abound, it is a wonderful theatre. It is yet another wonder that Cesar Manrique has made a joy to behold. There is also a lot of information on the islands volcanic history.

As the title says, a masterpiece and well worth a visit! Reasonable entry price. Cafe a bit pricey for a dried up baguette. White crabs a marvel as was the outdoor paradise.
