Only called to visit as we were dining in nearby El Golfo. There appeared to be no information on site to explain the lake and the green phenomenon. There was some souvenir sellers, but not of my party seemed inclined to indulge.

This was a nice place to stop I would recommend it if you have the time. There is no entrance fee you walk along a big path up to see the green lake. It is a pleasant walk and you can go down into the...More

Worth the short trip to see. The contrast in colors is incredible. The beach at this point is also spectacular.

Half an eroded volcano with green water in a lagoon. Very busy track to the viewpoint for an uninspiring photo opportunity (not taken). The drive along the main road through Timanfaya National Park much more dramatic.

We visited this lake on our way to El Golfo when we were on bikes. If it wasn't for all the people who stopped to take a look we would have missed it. It was not sign posted. Worth a visit

or just about. Separated by narrow band of fine black sand. Half a crater lake and has green waters. Probably a lot nicer depending on amount of sunlight.

Interesting phenomenon with olive green water contrasting with the black beach and it stays the same all year round.Quite a steep approach so not to be attempted if you have balance or walking problems.
