Meh. Really not worth the effort of the short uphill walk from the car park. If your pond was this full of algae you'd be down the local aquatic shop in no time at all. The upside to our visit is that we found a...More

Had taken a walk from the car park along the beach and the designated path. I was windy so we had opportunity to observe some waves along the way.

Visiting this place was a part of the sightseeing (coach tour) kind of volcano hill safari so it was a pleasant tour ove all.

Visited this place today as we have done everytime we spend our holidays in Lanzarote. However on this occasion, the strong winds acted as a deterrent and stopped me going all the way down to the lake. Some areas have also been restricted due to...More
