The best things to see in Lanzarote

The Green Lagoon is another phenomenal attraction. The crater lake is in the middle of the black sands of the beautiful El Golfo coast. The water is a luminous green due to its high algae content. This martian-like wonder looks like it lept from the pages of Ray Bradbury novel!
