I like when nature shows me something extraordinary.This is it exactly. Colours of the place belong to the "almost impossible" category.

Go and visit. Its only a short walk from the car park, over the crest of the incline. You are met with this green lake surrounded with black volcanic sand. On the walk back the views of the bay are just as spectacular

It is worth the climb up the hill to see the green lake and the cove with the crashing rocks. We walked down into the cove which was more sheltered . Also El golfo the village is worth a look. Lots of little restaurants with stunning views.

Great visit and walking around this open air cave and seeing the blind crabs moving around in the lake was fascinating. Next time the other cave. Hildigunnur in Iceland

El lago verde you find at the SW coast, near the small place of El Golfo. Put your car at the first parking at your left and take the 5 minutes walk on the hill. You will be amazed.

We went to El Golfo by car from Costa Teguise. It took about 35 minutes on fairly steady roads- the drive over itself was quite picturesque and relaxing, no haring around narrow roads with a huge drop to one side to get there. There's a large free car park as you come to El Golfo on the left and a... More

cool place to visit - the lake is super green on a sunny day - you can take cool pictures, walk around the beach looking for rocks and enjoy the view :)

Best lagoon view on Lazarote and free of charge. Beautiful, great views. I prefer ocean view then green puddle, but still, the rocks show pretty view of aeolian erosion thus worthy of closer views.

Not great, but the drive from the main highway is pretty scenic. El Golfe, the village is worth the walk. Plenty of seafood restaurant's. Be careful if walking on the lava it is sharp.

This is well worth a visit if you are passing - a very unusual sight with the green lagoon on one side and the ocean crashing around on the other, plus black sand. Its a fairly easy walk to the viewpoint.
