Los Hervideros (or "Boiling Waters") are a series of strange shaped rock formations where molten lava solidified as it met the ocean. As the name implies the sea bubbles and boils in the lava caves, chimneys and arches created by erosion, especially when there are heavy Atlantic swells.
Looking inland you can see the post-volcanic landscape left after this part of the island was riven with huge volcanic eruptions in the 1730s, which lasted over 6 years. Whilst rendering the island almost uninhabitable at the time they have left a unique landscape here, and elsewhere a fertile soil.
