I went here with husband and boys and spent a lovely couple of hours looking at the incredible views and looking for olivine. You can see the inside of the volcano crater and the rock colours and formations are amazing. My boys are 11 and 13 and one spent ages looking for green pebbles and the other spent ages in... More

This place was truly breathtaking. The views were spectacular and the green lagoon was just very interestingly beautiful. It's just the brightest green, I've never seen anything like it. we weren't allowed to go close to it because of the acidiness due to the enzymes in the rocks but that's what builds the character of it. I remember someone asked... More

A free attraction of a green lagoon, Charco De Los Clicos, in a volcanic crater which has filled with green water from algee and an excess of sulphur in the water. This used to have another road to it but this was washed away in a big storm some years ago. Make sure you have good shoes on for the... More

If you are in the Playa Blanca area this is quite a nice little place to stop. El Golfo village is very quaint and there are a few bar/restaurants for refreshments which have nice views out to sea. The attraction though, which is FREE, is the roped walk way to a viewing area overlooking a green lagoon, Charco De Los... More

A great place to stop off if you're driving round the island. The contrast between red rocks, green lagoon, black sand and blue sea really is quite a sight. Views from the top are excellent and you can get down to the beach down a reasonably difficult path. Only criticism is that there could be some explanation of why the... More

Great little spot for photos. Nearby village of El golfo is pretty and is the best way to approach the lagoon since the path to the south has been closed. Literally minutes from PB, and easybto hit if you take the clockwise route from Yaiza to Timanfaya

Not much to do here other than admire the contrasting colours and take photos. Yes it's possible to walk down to the lagoon but to be honest the view is better from the top. Having said that it's free, the views are good and we did enjoy.

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.
