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

Hi Guys, Spectacular show of Mother Nature. You can walk down there and when you place yourself right in the middle - turn around and you will see 4 different types of rocks + 2 different water colours. It is absolutely stunning view. Definitely worth it. Have a good trip.

The drive through the lava field along the cost was more impressive than the destination The town is somewhere stuck in time, mediocre restaurants tacky gift shops and the main attraction is as roped of green pond, I guess it's an attraction for anyone who likes backwater places

A short walk from the car park along the cliff side takes you to a lovely view of the bay below with this strange green pond/lake. Nothing spectacular but when you combine it with the unusual rock formations and colours in the cliffs, I suppose it's worth it. The village of El Golfo however is very quaint with some nice-looking... More

Stopped here for 20mins as part of the Lastminute-transfers South Tour. A short but steep walk from the coach/cat park brings you to a 15-20m high viewing platform about 75m from the lake. Take some pictures and headed on back to the coach. A nice short stop

Visited here with our party of 6 recently whilst on a 2 week holiday. El Golfo. It's the sort of place that's ok to visit if your driving nearby but would I make a special trip? Probably not. Having said that, it's a nice view and makes a good photograph. The green lagoon looks quite spectacular against the black sand... More

In all fairness, El Golfo is not something you see everyday! However it was more of a last minute thought in our tour and were only there for 15 mins for a photo stop and that was plenty to just get to see it. Still, a must see but wouldn't need much time there unless you want to chill on... More

You can stop here for ten minutes or for a whole hour, as we did, and stroll by the water and look closely at the landscape and the black pebbles on the beach. One of the most spectacular sights on the island.

I really wanted to see this it sounded interesting the photos looked good however it just looks like a large pond with algae in it! Looked kind of luminous in pictures but in the flesh its very dull. Have a look if you're passing but don't go out your way!
