El Lago Verde, El Golfo

3.6
#5 of 7 in Nature in Lanzarote
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. Add El Lago Verde and other attractions to your Lanzarote trip itinerary using our Lanzarote journey planner .

    Beautiful indeed! A continuous contrast of colors: the Red Rock, Green Lake, the Black Beach, the Ocean Blue is a wonderful way to reach it. Highly recommended!

    Walking around in the Green Lake is unique and the views are even more. The car stops in the village 'The Gulf', walk road, and it takes very little to that viewpoint. The beach is just next door.
