Green Lagoon of Lanzarote

Green Lagoon of Lanzarote

Lanzarote, Canary Islands
El Golfo and the Green Lagoon are among the most spectacular and bizarre landscape phenomenons I have ever experienced.  El Golfo is a volcanic crater flooded by seawater.  In the cove,  the sea water has become trapped in the form of a lake and turned a striking acidic green, due to the algae which lives there. The Green Lagoon contrasts with a black pebble beach and wind eroded cliffs and rock formations in the background.
