The rock formations are fascinating but a commentary on it would be useful. The lakes are being maintained as heavy construction vehicles were working on an access to road and there were large piles of stones on the seaward side. The lakes had booms across the. So yes. Do see it. Access is easy from the free car park but... More

This green lake is not as impressive as we expected. It is just a green lake which you look down upon from a distance after a climb up a rough track to reach it. You can see its proximity to the sea, but although it does make a good photo, it is not as spectacular as promotional literature shows. There... More

We went to the area called El Golfo just to see the brilliant rock formations and the green lake. Its a fantastic area with such a pretty little village and plenty of restaurants.

If you're in the vicinity, it's worth a look. Currently, man is trying to improve on nature, various earthmoving equipment appears to be trying to up the tourist appeal. I think the spectacularly green lake is shrinking away and the locals are trying to restore it! Good luck with that!

Very adjacent to El Golfo, so worth a quick visit. Nothing spectacular, just an interesting diversion to see nature at work.The lake is reducing in size so they are trying adjust the beach layout so it increases to its original size.

The site was undergoing repairs, and the lagoon was quite small due to a long dry period. The surrounding area is worth seeing.

It is what it says on the tin. A green lagoon. It looks exactly like the pictures so expect no surprises. Is it worth the journey to it (it is a bit out the way)? I wouldn't say so.

For those of you who enjoy the sea and net resting walks, look o further than El Golfo. Take a walk on a black sandy beach, and gather some Olivina, (green gem stones). What could be more rewarding. Enjoy El Golfo.
