Busy, stunning, weird blind, white crabs but not my favourite of his works. Why can't anyone use the pool? (see other comments)

Mostly thanks to the additional works by Cesare Manrique this is a very beautiful location with great photo opportunities.Although ,having said that,the naturally formed cave and pool with the unique, albino white crabs,are well worth a visit in their own right The owners have placed eating and drinking facilities everywhere on the site but the wife and I were glad to be able to sit down for a coffee and baguette and have a rest.Also plenty of toilet facilities spread around this location.

All the best,

Peter and Rosalind

The site is based within natural volcanic tunnels and “jameos” (openings to the outside surface due to collapse) which have subsequently been designed into a place of entertainment by local artists Jesus Soto and Cesar Manrique.

Beyond the restaurant/café/bar at the entrance you descend down stairs to a tunnel with a natural pool which contains rare tiny white crabs. A path along the edge of this leads beyond to another café/bar and as you climb upstairs you emerge at an open-air swimming pool - although it’s not permitted to go into the water. The whole area looks like a film set for an Austin Powers 1960’s jet-set night club - groovy baby!

Perhaps with this in mind a woman visitor “of a certain age” was posing, fully clothed thank goodness, for photographs being taken by her partner in the style of Penthouse a la 1960’s! We guessed they had maybe been here in it’s heyday with Mick Jagger and were reliving the experience. Either that or the photos were destined for the readers' wives section of Belarus Beauties.

Beyond the pool a cave has been transformed into an auditorium which provided some peace and sanctuary. It would have been interesting to be there when a concert was being performed however that would take better planning than most visitors will probably make.

Outside again there are good opportunities for taking photos on the “set” as you climb more stairs to another café - and third time lucky we decided to stop at this one for a cool drink.

When we were exploring this upper section we ventured into the exhibition about volcanoes almost by accident however it wasn‘t the most interesting display I‘ve come across, the same of which could be said for the gift shop.

Worth seeing if you’re in the area - and prepared to pay 8 euros per adult. Lots of stairs so not suitable for those less able.

A lot of money to gain entrance to what is an underground café, and theatre.
Are the white crabs real? I never saw any of them move. Is it just another tourist con?
