Just couple kilometers away from Los Hervideros (if you are with rent car - we suggest to include the location as sightseeing place too). Location is well prepared for tourists - paths made to climb a hill where a stunning view can be seen: a...More

It's a volcanic crator filled with algi, which is what gives it the green (pond-like) colour. I found the red stone of the crator sat beyond, the black sand and the rocky shore more interesting but if you want to kill a few hours and...More

We went expecting a bit more, but tbh from the view point it just looks like a big pool of muddy water, loads of tourists, and tacky souvenirs the village next to it is worth a visit. Los Herbvidores is much more interesting

Visited 3 times, make sure you stop at the viewing car parks as the road down is stunning and worth a look. Golfo has a lovely little cafe just by the walk to the lake. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Stopped off here on a drive up the east coast from Playa Blanca. Short walk up a path takes you to a look out over a black beach with a green lagoon. There is a restaurant here and a couple of stalls selling jewellery.

A beautiful village with fabulous seafront restaurants. Relax over lunch watching the waves crash into the shoreline.

Very pleasant restaurant where the staff seem to know everybody, which to me indicates that people go back here again and again.. That's not surprising; I enjoyed a simple but tasty portion of garlic bread for starters, with complimentary croquettes. My main was grilled squid...More

A great day out of you want a break from the more commercial surrounding resorts - this is a bit of a blast from the past and retains some old school Spanish fishing village charm. The coastline is something special, the green lagoon walk is...More
