Things to do in lanzarote - El Golfo

El Golfo

El Golfo is a town on the west coast of Lanzarote, famous for two things: its fabulous fish restaurants but also its luminous green lake (Lago Verde).

The lake is in a crater which is the result of the dramatic events of Timanfaya combined with the effects of the Atlantic. Over time the ocean has eaten into the volcano leaving a emerald-green lagoon which produces a magnificent array of colours depending on the position of the sun. Close to the crater is the fishing village with many enticing fish restaurants to choose from.
