El Lago Verde, El Golfo
(3.6/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This place is in a crater semi-submerged in the sea which has a beach of black sand and a green lagoon in the Center. It is incredible and very magical.

  • Hello everyone.. Oh yes, the Green Lake or Lagoon (charco) de los Clicos Beach, found just outside the small village of El Golfo, in southwestern beautiful Lanzarote. We will arrive with a short walk from the parking lot in front of the souvenir shop. The color of the water is rotten, not bright green. Is set to perfection in the magnificent landscape composed of lava, ferrous and Crystal hills almost always moderate. For reasons she protected banned the visit. Years ago it was possible to make even the bathroom, then finally have realized that soon the fragile ecosystem would be irreparably damaged and decided the closure to the public. Therefore be content to see it from above. A very interesting attraction of the dozens of things you have to do on the beautiful Canary Island. Until next time... Alessio and Michela
