Contrast Between Blue Water and Black Sand

The Charco de los Clicos is also known as Lago Verde. This lake is located in the locality of El Golfo, southeast of Lanzarote, and it owes its name to the color of the water. It is located next to the border of the Timanfaya National Park, so the surroundings are very volcanic, with beaches of black sand. Conversely, it is one of these black sand beaches that stands out because of the lake with an intense green color. The experts say that it is because of special seaweed that lives in the water and makes it green. One must believe it…

It is very beautiful, thanks to the contrast of blue and black.

Beautiful Green Color

El Golfo is a green lagoon, also known as Laguna de los Cliclos, located south of Lanzarote. It is a beautiful place, in front of the sea, and a rare example of hydrovolcanism. It is the volcanic activity that goes on near the sea. It is a small crater that has in its center the lagoon, of a beautiful green color, especially when it receives the sunlight. You can go near the lagoon and smell the sulfur, but you can’t get too close because it’s dangerous. Logically, it is forbidden to bathe inside.

The beach that surrounds it is accessible to all and you can swim there. it is a natural place, so the entrance is free.

Green Lagoon

This place leaves you breathless if you try to imagine how it was formed by nature, since it is surrounded by half a volcanic crater on one side, and by a beach of black sand on the other, and with the sea beating the rocks and various black rock islets nearby. It is an authentic lunar landscape, Martian, or even from a farther place.
