The Jameos del Agua was the Centre of Art, Culture and Tourism to be created by César Manrique and reflects one of the cornerstones of his creative work: harmony between nature and artistic creation. The Jameos del Agua are located inside the volcanic tunnel created by the eruption of La Corona Volcano, one of the longest in the world, at 6 kilometres in length.

Lots to do

Its not just a view of the crabs and a walk through the tunnel, there is a fascinating little museum and lots of displays and facts about volcanoes - many interactive.

Jameos Del Agua is basically the end of a lava tube close to the sea. Although I have already visited various volcanic areas in the world, I have never seen a similar thing at all. The actual "lake-in-the-cave' is a relatively small part of this complex, there are a few buldings with exhibitions about volcanism and a concert hall in... More

Have you seen small white blind Crabs ( that look like mini lobsters)?? Probably not; as this is the only place they exist - fascinating. But please obey the signs and do NOT defile their water. The gardens are both peaceful (even when full of people) and imaginative. The Casa de Vulcanos is very informative. If you get a chance... More

We went for dinner and the concert on Saturday, a magical experience with the lights reflecting off the lake. Great music and the food was quite good. Saturday evening one can dine a la carte or just have a drink and enjoy the surroundings and the music. Also open Tuesday evenings but with a prix fixe menu.

Really recommend visiting here, never seen anything like this before. From the surreal cave and watery depths littered with little albino crabs looking like stars in the sky, to the stunning architecture of Cesar Manrique. Fantastic!

This is a truly magical place to visit. The cavern is the only place in the world where you can see albino crab. There is also a private swimming pool to be used only if the King of Spain visits. Some great exhibits to see as well. The upper caverns have been used by the famous Pavarotti and the acoustics... More

This was such a cool place to go. The Cave is brilliant and the white crabs - oh my days I've never seen anything like it! To add to the fun we watched 2 people accidently step into the water which was mildly amusing but don't do it yourself! The other part where the pool is is really chilled. I'd... More

Visited today not really knowing what to expect but am so glad that we did. The whole place has an air or tranquility and is stunning to look at. Could have spent hours there just sitting and enjoying the calm surroundings. There are a lot of steps there so definitely not suitable for a buggy but we carried our 8... More

We didn't know what to expect but loved this imaginative presentation of a natural phenomenon. Probably best to visit this BEFORE the related Cueva de los Verdes if you can, especially if you want to understand the volcanic forces that created both places.

We made two visits to the site. The first was a daytime walk around the cave, exhibition and rooms; that was very interesting. The second visit was for the gourmet dinner and concert. The illuminated cave with reflections off the water was spectacular. The meal was anything but "gourmet dinner" and was a disgrace for such a lovely location
