La laguna de los ciclos
It is also known as the green lake because that is the color of its waters. It is located on a black sand beach covered by a brown mountain offering a true contrast of colors. The color of its waters is produced by the level of sulfur in them. It is considered by many to be the most picturesque place on Lanzarote.
It is a cliff area that offers a unique spectacle. In its caves the ocean usually enters with enough force hitting and jumping in the natural enclave. Admiring the force of the ocean can be truly pleasurable.
