My wife and I were enthralled by the experience of visiting Los Hervideros. There is a large (free!) car park with a few vendors selling souvenirs. There is a flat paved path which you follow to view the waves crashing into the rocks. From the main path, their are steps between the rocks. These enable you to get close to the viewing points. Here you could get different perspectives of the action. Numerous coach parties arrived whilst we were there. It seemed like they had only 15-20 minutes there. This meant that we had to wait a short while to reach a viewing platform. As we had a hire car, we could linger for as long as we wanted. The place was only sparsely populated around midday. There were times when the waves collided with the rock walls with such force that water shot over the wall and drenched the unsuspecting visitors. A good tip is not to stand where the path is wet!

Superb scenery, unique volcanic inlets with dramatic waves / caves well worth a visit all along this coast from the salt flats. Stop in the many parking places for very dramatic vies especially if the sea is choppy - take a camera !

The first time we stopped here we didn't know what the attraction was because we couldn't see anything unusual.

Then on another visit to the island we were passing on a road quite some distance from the ocean and we could see the large waves and the ocean was the colour spearmint blue, it looked like a mouthwash colour. We went to the location of the attraction and wow, it was amazing. Hugh waves and the strangest colours.

Not to be missed, if you are lucky enough to catch it at the right time.

It is a very short walk into the cliff, where you can get different views of the waves breaking into the rocks, from different angles. Very nice and free!

This site reminds us that you don't necessarily need to pay for fantastic attractions. The Hervideros (the kettles) are lovely and worth dropping into on your way to or from El Golfo and/or the Salt Flats (Salinas).
