“A Quarry”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

If you are touring the southern part of Lanzarote and are nearby it may be worth stopping. It reminds me of a quarry. Not that spectacular or interesting. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see this.

“Brilliant surprise”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

If you are looking for a place to see or drive to in Lanzarote then this is a must see.
The scenery is so unique. It was like being on Mars but with wind.

“Lava meets the Atlantic Ocean”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

If you have a car and are close to El Golfo head down to 'The Emerald Lake'. As you drive down the road and are just entering El Golfo there is a restaurant and souvenir shop on the bend and there is a big car park on the left (which is free). Pull in there and it is a short walk over the top. Definitely worth looking and it only takes 5 minutes (at the most) to get to the viewing area.

As a note, El Golfo has some lovely restaurants selling great tapas (we ate at Restaurant El Golfo which was good) and you should walk (or drive) to the other end of the village and see the sea crashing against the solidified lava fields.

“My Favorite 'Natural' Attraction in Lanzarote”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

By far, my most favorite beach visited in Lanzarote. Breathtakingly beautiful and different. We visited in February and it was nice to get away from Lanzarote's main tourist attractions and visit a uniquely special beach.
