Charco de los Clicos (Green Lagoon)

A lagoon inside a volcano crater in Lanzarote
On the west coast of Lanzarote, near Yaiza, we come across a very contrasting landscape. Here, the crater of an extinct volcano submerges into the Atlantic ocean forming a lagoon known as the Charco de los Clicos (Green Lagoon), declared a Natural Reserve. Its green colour, caused by the algaes at the bottom, contrasts with the blues of the sky and sea and the black sand on the beach known as El Golfo which is just 100 metres from the lagoon.
A volcanic landscape to be enjoyed by the sea
In order to enjoy the views at their best, it is advisable to visit the view point at El Golfo first, especially late in the evening when calm and silence reign in the atmosphere. The path leading down from the car park to the beach will take you to the unique volcanic landscape of the Charco de los Clicos and you will enjoy for yourself the wonderful sunsets from the beach.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
