This is well worth a visit if you are passing - a very unusual sight with the green lagoon on one side and the ocean crashing around on the other, plus black sand. Its a fairly easy walk to the viewpoint.

The Green Lagoon was beautiful, quite an unusual thing to see- a great green puddle in the middle of nowhere! However, would advise every visitor to watch their step when climbing the paths or the tall viewpoint that faces out to sea just by the lagoon. It's very narrow and the pebbles are extremely slippy- saw a few people nearly... More

Difficult to call it a 'nice' beach what with the black sand and jagged rocks along the shoreline, but lots of interesting photo opportunities, and well worth a visit for the otherworldly scenery.

Well worth visiting beautiful scenery unfortunately the cloudy sky meant that the lake was rather a dull green but none the less worth seeing also the waves and rocks made it a delightful visit.

Lovely little green lake. Very picturesque against the black lava. The shades are different depending on the time of day and the sun.

With water the colour of emeralds, or at the very least the olivinia that can be found on the black beach, this is a beautiful, inspiring sight to see. The tour guide, a Lanzarotean born and bred, told us that when she was a child she would go swimming in the lagoon but over recent years it has decreased in... More

The Lagoon was a good photo opportunity, not much else around so don't go out of your way to come here especially. Very busy with tours but the crowds moved quickly.

Lovely almost end of the world seaside town with charm over flowing. Great restaurants on the beach including placido and azure. Lovely rustic beach chalets and of course the green lake make this town very interesting for its size

The view from the top of the cliff is amazing. The sea is constantly crashing into the coast and it just feels fresh. The green lagoon is a natural wonder.

Inevitably, this area is very crowded with tourists -- but for good reason. The lagoon is an otherworldly sight, and definitely worth a stop.
