Wasn’t the easiest place to find, wasn’t very well sign posted and wasn’t possible to get any closer than the view point but still awesome to see.

Vibrant green water in a lagoon - unusual to see! El Golfo p, the village adjacent to the lagoon, is very pretty and unspoilt.

Head for El Golfo and park in the large car park at the start of the town and walk up the roped path to the green lagoon. Once you have taken a picture, there is nothing more to see, so retrace your steps and go...More
