El Golfo

El Golfo is in the west of Lanzarote and is famous for its wild beauty, its green lagoon, black beaches and tiny, semi-precious green stones called Olivina.

Many a movie has been filmed here, including One Million Years BC (1966) featuring Raquel Welch, Enemy Mine (1986), and more recently, Hollywood director Ron Howard´s Heart of the Sea, and also an episode of popular British sci-fi series Doctor Who.
