fantastic views

Tough walk up to the top but worth it for the view. You can see the whole of Playa Blanca from up there

It's an easy walk to the top of the volcano. Everyone can do this. You can park your car on the sideways just as you see the stonemarks "Volcano". ENJOY!!!!

Montana Roja is a volcano. You can walk up this volcano and around the top, even into the crater. The walk up is quite steep at times and uneven but once up the top, the views are fantastic especially at sunrise and sunset. Walking into the crater of the volcano is amazing too and the rocks and gravel are red... More

Very accessible on foot only, though clearly an unofficial attraction with no sign posting or information signs, the Montana Roja is an extinct volcano crater behind the seafront development of Playa Blanca that gives spectacular views. The walk is steep to the first ridge and over broken waste ground in part, but surprisingly short. You can be at the rim... More

Amazing views over the south west part of the island and straight across to Fuerteventura. Park at Av. Los Claveles as the path up from here is reasonably gentle. This walk is fine for everyone, although I wouldn't recommend going up between 11 and 3 due to the ambient temperatures. Take lots of water, there are no facilities nearby and... More

Took the short trek up here and had a great experience. The views at the top are spectacular. Well worth the effort, which wasn't a lot. The path is steep in parts but is easily manageable in sensible shoes. Would recommend it. Cured the hangover too.

The walk to the top of Montana Roja is not too challenging although sturdy footwear is advisable as there is loose gravel on some of the paths. However, it is not suitable for buggies due to the rocky uneven groud. Once at the top of the mountain the views of Playa Blanca are spectacular. You literally feel on top of... More

If you are satying at one of the hotels in Playa Blanca, it is a pleasant hike with good views and an interesting landscape. If you need to travel to get there, you may be disappointed. It doesn't look like much of a walk and I saw a few 10-12 year old kids doing but it was still enough to... More
