Landscapes of extraordinary natural beauty: La Laguna de los Ciclos, situated in the centre of the crater of La Montaņa de El Golfo, Los Hervideros and Las Salinas del Janubio.

El Golfo is one of the few and rare examples of hydro-volcanism - volcanic activity that occurs near the coast. In its interior, in the centre of the crater, has emerged La Laguna de los Ciclos, a lake of the most intense green - a colour that is produced by the concentration of the algae, Ruppia Maritima.

Los Hervideros is the name by which the coast is known at the point where the waves violently strike the pathways formed by the lava floes. When the sea is choppy, it strikes against the holes in the lava and shoots up to the surface, as if it were boiling.

Las Salinas del Janubio is a place of scientific interest where not only the fauna is protected, but also the traditional method of extracting salt from the seawater. Before the eruptions of 1730-1736, it was the best natural harbour on Lanzarote, but the eruptions created a sand bar that closed this point forming a lake called La Caleta de Janubio.
