The green lake is a strange site but it only worth going if you are in the area (that said there are quite a lot of things to see on this coastline). You are now only able to view the lake from a roped off...More

Even more extraordinary than the green lagoon for me was the waves in the rock showing how the lava flowed and cooled. Well worth a visit.

El Golfo is worth the trip out to see this natural creation. It's certainly a good photo shoot. Some very good restaurants nearby for lunch and in the evening dinner and a spectacular sunset are worth coming back for.

I got here as part of a tour of the full island. After a short 200m walk from the car park, you come upon the green lake, viewed from a height. It's a nice view of what essentially is an algae filled lake. Nice enough.
