Several of the Canary Islands are blessed with volcanic caves - Cueva del Viento on Tenerife and Cueva de los Verdes on Lanzarote are the most known, with Cueva de Don Justo on El Hierro being the hidden, inaccessible gem. Yet on Lanzarote there are other caves, accessible on your own, for conscious, careful, properly equipped, experienced and nature respecting admirer, which make this island the very best of all.
