The range of colours is unbelievable, the blues and greens of the sea, the sky dotted with the occasional white cloud, the golden sands on the isled opposite and even a series of pinks and reds in some salt ponds directly at the foot of the mountain the belvedere rests on.

 

According to some historians an incident took place on the isle of la Graciosa that was the basis for the book Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
