A place not to be missed

Our first stop was at the Pico de Bandama mirador (at 1,883ft) for a panoramic view of the adjacent countryside and a view into the heart of the volcanic crater 0.6miles wide. Parking can be a bit tricky and something of a "free for all" when the place is busy! Next came our 656ft descent into the crater, through an... More

Good short hike round the Caldera- my walks book described this as vertiginous but it was fine- some ascent and decent walking shoes/boots needed. Get the bus to Bandama if using public transport.

We visited on a clear sunny day and the views were spectacular. You can definitely see that it was a crater. We visited a cafe nearby and had a cup of tea and sandwich.

An interesting winding drive up leads to a look out with fabulous views of the island overlooking the long extinct caldera. It's a must on any tour of the island.

Beautiful clear day and so worth the trip. On a cruise and decided wanted a bit of high volcanic scenery. So onto coach and having a skillful river helps as the roads are vertical, twisting and turning with sheer drops. Drove around he caldera and saw from many positions the size of the crater and how vegetation has taken hold.... More

This is a fantastic place to take photos of much of the island. It's worth the drive up to the top. Also, on the way down you can stop by a winery for tastings.

Two city noob trackers entered semi prepaired into this beautiful place, wearing nothing but worn out sneakers and cool looks. Naturally we faced an obstacle a little harder by the quality of our missing equipment, but we made it. Indeed this great crater of fertillity holds amazing secrets to be discovered. From The top an amazing view teasing you to... More

Needs to be a clear day (which are plentiful on Gran Canaria). The caldera is impressive but so is the drive up and back. We drove through the clouds then saw them fill the caldera and move on in a really eerie way. Need to take a day to slowly appreciate this and the other parts of the high part... More

After taking photos of the panoramicviews from the pico, we drove back down to the turn off to the campo do golf and parked. The walks round the rim and down to the bottom of the caldera start just beside the winery and are open until 18.00. The walk down was paved for the first few metres then gave way... More
