Fodor's Review

These water caverns, 15 km (9 miles) north of the Costa Teguise, were created when molten lava streamed through an underground tunnel and hissed into the sea. Look for the tiny albino crabs on the rocks in the underground lake—this species, which is blind, is found nowhere else in the world. There are bars and restaurants around the lake, and the Casa de los Volcanes is a good museum of volcanic science. Night visits are possible on Saturday.
