El Golfo and the Charco de los Clicos

El Golfo also known as the Green Lagoon is another unforgettable corner of Lanzarote.

It is to be found in the little fishing village of El Golfo, at the south-western end of the Timanfaya National Park.

The little bay, barely two minutes from the town, is like a scene from a dream, a vision of remote planets yet to be explored. In fact, this is the crater of a volcano which has been partly drowned by the ocean.

The crescent-shaped bay on the opposite shore, with its beach of black sand and a lake of emerald-green waters (due to a high concentration of algae) is a beautiful but desolate sight, and has featured in both Spanish and international films.
