The famous Canarian artist Cesar Manrique (from Lanzarote) created the Martiánez Lake at the border of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a vast and beautiful collection of open air salt-water pools that can be considered both a place of leisure and a work of art. As a union between architecture and nature it combines canary traditional architecture and many original sculptures with exuberant vegetation. This enclave is made up of an artificial lake, of 27,000 cubic meters of seawater, in which several islands are placed. The complex is provided with bars, restaurants and kiosks and is a great place for swimming and sunbathing. Cesar Manrique decorated it with typical natural elements of the island, such as volcanic lava and endemic vegetation: palms, teasels or tabaibas and the dominant mantle of white colour, which, combined with the volcanic stone surrounds everything.
The water is renewed daily with seawater.
