Natural areas of beauty

El Golfo is a small seaside village located west of the town Yaiza and on the coast. The village is famous for its Charco de Los Clicos, or green lagoon, and the location is also featured in the film Broken Embraces starring Penelope Cruz. Fantastic fresh fish lunches can also be enjoyed here while taking in the sea views.

The stunning Papagayo Beaches are located on the outskirts of the resort, along the coast to the east. A drive along a dirt track road, with a small entrance fee, brings you to a collection of picturesque beaches with golden sand and crystal clear waters offering peaceful and secluded surroundings. These beaches are perfect if you're looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the main resort beaches.

National parks

The Timanfaya National Park is a must see when holidaying on the island. Declared a national park back in 1968, this site was once host to more than 100 volcanoes. The restaurant in the park serves traditional Canarian food that’s cooked using a cast-iron grill placed over a large hole in the ground. There is also the option to take a camel ride across the volcanic landscape.
