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

For anyone interested in geology a visit to El Golfo is an absolute must. If time and fitness permits it is well worth descending the steep path onto the beach where the true magnitude of the remaining crater walls can be observed. This would be a great place to take kids especially if you want to give them a quick... More

You can only get to the one way now as one of the roads hasdisappeared into the sea/cliff! Did not go to fish restaurants. Parked for free in big car park, lovely walks and views. Looked amazing.Sand was very black which fascinated the children! Well worth a trip!

Lovely views on walk to lake but water level in lake itself very low. While setting is beautiful and contrast with volcanic rock great, lake itself was rather disappointing. But still makes a great day out combined with some fresh fish down in El Golfo village.

The drive down to El Golfo along by the sea was amazing. There was free parking which is always good. A path along side the hill takes you round to the lake.. I did not realise until afterwards that it is volcano crater.. The path is not really suitable for push chairs or wheel chairs, but was fine for us.... More

A quick walk along a cliff path gets you to a view point for this unusual sight, a bright green lagoon separated from the sea by a black sand beach. Free car park and attraction, nothing more than the view but worth seeing.
