In the Playa del Garita (municipality of Telde) there is El Bufadero, a series of basalt rock craters (a fine grain rock and a dark or black color rich in minerals), which are connected to the sea through galleries. They are a kind of natural pools that are emptied and constantly fill with the rhythm of the waves; Depending on the power of the current, the water is compressed into the underwater cavities and then ejected to the surface through an orifice located on the ground, as in a chimney (creating a geyser effect which can reach several meters in height).

The name of the Bufadero comes from the sound that emits water (similar to the “puff of animals like horse, bull or cat), called” bufido “in the language of Cervantes
