|El Golfo is a natural amphitheatre open to the sea which was formed from the volcanic eruptions of 1730. The lagoon, which fills the base of this semicircular crater, is a result of flooding, and its green colour is from the algae that inhabit its waters. |
The volcano made of porous lava ash has through the action of time given rise to spectacular formations.
The sea connected underground, passes through the crater forming a beautiful black beach, which contrasts with the green lagoon.
This lake has been declared a natural reserve which prohibits bathing.
It is located in the south of the island in the Municipality of Yaiza.
