Marvel at the wonders of nature on a visit to El Lago Verde, a striking green lagoon in a volcanic crater. Deriving its color from rare microorganisms and volcanic minerals, the lake is bordered by impressive black sand beaches leading to the El Golfo village. Admire the contrasting colors of the lake and black sand from the surrounding cliffs or walk down to the lake’s edge for an up-close look. After your visit, stop in the village for a meal at one of the oceanfront restaurants.

  • The red and black of the rock, the green of the lagoon, the blue of the sea... El Lago Verde really is a great place for a walk on the beach. Nearby: El Golfo, its nice restaurants and its black coastline impressive. On the road, a few kilometers, Los Hervideros and the Salinas del Janubio: 2 other really nice views.

  • After a short and simple foot path you can admire this wonderful landscape: Green Lake on the left and on the right the ocean! I absolutely recommend to inspect it. Thanks to Ta I also discovered a nearby restaurant (overlooking the ocean but sheltered from the wind) where you eat well.

  • Because I am a natural person anyway, such attractions are a must for me. Very nice green lagoon. Just a pity that it sometime this lagoon will disappear forever.
