Natural wonder of green lagoon and submerged volcano.

I think the emerald green lagoon framed by the blue Atlantic ocean and the black rock of a submerged volcano is one of the most enchanting places in Lanzarote. The extraordinary landscape was created when Timanfaya erupted and, sculpted by the pounding of waves, formed a deep amphitheatre of lava. The dazzling green of the lake comes from the algae which lives in its waters. It is reached by a small access road around 2km before the fishing village of El Golfo, famed for its fish restaurants.

Expert tips

There are car parking spaces by the road leading to the Green Lagoon.

Don't miss lunch in one of the fish restaurants. I recommend Costa Azul.
