Worth the walk to get up to the viewing area of the lagoon. Spectacular scenery and lots of photo opportunities.

It's a beautiful sight to see if you're in the area. Close to the Timanfaya National Park. It's worth spending about 30 minutes to walk around, admire, take pics.

I do not like very much Lanzarote beach and landscape. It is like Moon or Mars and here you can find something again strange but in same time interesting lake. It is green lake although you can think it is part of ocean ;). No it is lake and color is made by algae living there. Another place where you... More

An easy walk from El Golfo this bay is well worth a visit. A natural wonder resulting from the volcanic activity that whose effects dominate the south of the island.

An unusual sight. You get a great view from a walkway above the lake or you can walk down onto the beach to get a closer view but the lake itself is roped off. When I went there years ago you could paddle in the lake.

It's a pool of green water. The lava moonscape you drive through to get there is more atmospheric, but the restaurants you can eat at after you have been there more than make up for it.

The green lagoon at El Golfo is shrinking and will eventually be lost forever, so even though it.s not as impressive as it has been, and you can no longer swim in it, you won.t have the chance to see it for that much longer. This is well worth the visait and if you catch the Grand Tour this is... More

Amazing contrast between the blue sea, black sand and green lagoon [algae]. Well worth seeing. Do not leave the official pathway as dangerous of rock slides.
