Charco Verde - Photo by JP Files

Charco Verde is a unique "green pond" tucked inside the great crater separated from the sea, most of the time, by a strip of rich black sand. Its distinctive green colour is formed by marine flora in the water. This unusual coloration is specifically due to the accumulation of seaweed: marine ruppia. With an impressive volcanic landscape around the pond, it is the perfect setting for landscape photography with a colourful background with the green of the pond, the black sand, the red gravel of the cliff and the blue of the sky and sea.
