El Golfo; it was, as a beach, awesome! Bring some sturdy foot wear and the path down and on the beach is rather rocky! The stone died green lake itself it's quite impressive, and a lot is being done to try and preserve it. You can't get too close to the water, but you can get close enough.

A small green pond, separated from the blue ocean by a black sand beach. It would have been better if there was a sign explaining why the water is green.

Take a tour with Lanzarote Experience Tours. We chose them over the cruise ship shore excursion, saw twice as much and had a great time with Angela. Highly recommended

If you have the time to explore Lanzarote then you have to include El Golfo on your route. It's easy to fit into a loop route when in the south of the island and it's free to visit. If you take the time to have a look around you can see so much of the makeup of the landscape in... More

After a very satisfying lunch in a superb Fish Restaurant in El Golfo, overlooking a turbulent but impressive ocean we visited El Largo Verde. Not a great deal to look at, but different all the same. No access down to this lagoon as we believe recent rain downpours had eroded some of the pathway leading down to it. So close-up... More

The lake is a lurid bright green and really stands out against the rad and black rocks and sand, but you can't actually get anywhere near it. There were lots of people there when we went, so actually getting a look was tricky. So it was a quick peek then we were off!

This was the first stop in our guided tour and one of the best. The view of the pond is mesmerizing from top of the hill. You will see 3 contrasting colors in couple of feets. The green pond followed by the black beach and then the blue sea. The walk down to the lake is a bit tricky as... More

If you come to explore lanzarote, then this is worth your time. There's a large obvious car park as you turn into El Golfo, then u need to find the path that leads u to this magical scene - the famous green Lagoon "Charcoal De Los Clicos" with a 'black beach" that separates the ocean front from the green lagoon,...

Well, it’s free, which is a good start. Another good thing is that it can readily be inserted as a stop on any tour of the region due to the relatively small distances between places of interest in the region. We arrived in the early afternoon and squeezed onto the second closest car park to the trail that runs up... More
