4,000 Year Old, Jameos del Agua

Written by DEKYA

The Jameos del Agua situated in Spain Lanzarote are part of an incredible 6Km long lava tube which formed about 4,000 years ago when the Montaña La Corona erupted. Molten lava continued to flow as the surface hardened, which in turn led to the formation of the tubes, which run down under the Atlantic and are filled with crystal blue mystical water. This natural lake has extremely clear water – regulated by the Atlantic Ocean – and is home to a species of blind albino crabs known as ‘Jameitos’ which are so rare they are only found in Lanzarote.
