Short walk from El Golfo, but not the vivid green in all the pictures, more a khaki dirty green.....

Probably the single best 'sightseeing' thing to do on the island due to its beauty. Drive 9km past Los Hervideros to El Golfo where you park up by the first big car park you see which is literally the first thing you come across in El Golfo. There's a 5mins walk along a broad gravel path towards the lake/coast. You... More

The most beautiful place on the island! The colours of water and all nature around are amazing - it's must see! The sun plays with water so depending on year season and day part you can see different colours. One more thing - the lake is going to disappear in some time in the future, so hurry up :)

Time spent in this attraction would be 30 mins max. There is a short walk (very gravelly so wear proper shoes, I didn't!) and the views are lovely. But that's about it. Not much else to it! Worth a visit.

Different colors from black to red make you think that you're not on this planet. sand of different size and shape, and huge rocks just finalize the amazing picture. One of the most unusual and beautiful places visited.

We visited here whilst on a South Tour of Island, it was a short stop, I would have liked a little more time to have a longer walk around, as it was we just did a short walk and had some lovely views. Its probably not somewhere I would want to travel miles just to see, but whilst on a... More

To truly experience this wonderful location you must brave it and walk down the steep pathway to the black sandy beach. The cliffs are fantastic geology and there are some interesting rocks and Quartz on the beach. The lake is mysterious. An idyllic escape from the frequent grotty tourist areas.

We parked at the shop/restaurant (free parking), bought a Carte d'Or ice cream from the shop just before walking along the stony path to the view point for the green lake. The view is amazing. If you want to walk down to the beach and lake, you need to go down a stony steepish path so I wouldn't recommend for... More
