“Don't go in the morning.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

As we were staying in El Golfo, we went twice. The first time at 10am, and as the sun had not risen behind the hill, it just looked black. The second time was in the afternoon, and the water was indeed very green, although I was told by a local that the lake is now only half the size that it used to be.

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Nice walk round the cliffs to a good view sight
Suggest go early or late to miss the tour buses probably evening to get the benefit of the sunset

“It realy shines green when you there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

Very beautiful costline. You may watch the waves coming down to the beach. Some are about
3-5meters high. From the parking you walk to the left down to the beach and then you see the green lake quite spectacular.
I think its worth it to visit this spot. Especially when you love the surf.

“Nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

This is another attraction in Lanzarote that is free of charge and you can enjoy it on your own. If you just want to watch the lake from a cliff above you can do so, but you can also walk down to the black beach to get closer. The views here are stunning! I do miss some kind of information sign at the viewpoint, about the lake and why it's green, but otherwise a cool thing to see.

“Algae”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

After reading the reviews on trip adviser, we went to see el lago verde. We have seen many breathing sights all over the world, however, I think we are missing the point here. Yes the sea views and the large waves are pleasant on the eye. However, the green pool! What's that all about. Have the Spanish not experience Algae b4. Ha ha! Not that impressive! Sorry!
