The Green Lagoon

El Golfo, Lanzarote - March 2008

One of the principal attractions at El Golfo is the famous Green Lagoon – an unusual phenomenon in the cove, where sea water has become trapped in the form of a lake and turned a striking acidic green, due to the algae which lives there.
The beach itself is made of pebbles, and the cliffs behind the lagoon are equally dramatic, having been wind eroded into fantastic shapes over the course of the centuries. The scenery is further enhanced by the large finger of rock which sits just off the beach and causes the sea to crash around it.
