Lanzarote  Montana del Golfo Location: 28°59' N, 13°50' W  Elevation:  157 m   The Tuff-Crater Montana del Golfo was cut by the sea surf and formed by wind erosion in the soft ahs layers. To the sea side, there has been a barrier beach of black volcanic sand formed, behind  lies a lagoon with green water. The intense colour contrast between the green water, black sand, yellow and red ash layers and the sapphire sea and sky  creats  a very peculiar mood .
