A pleasant walk to the top of the 'volcano' where surprisingly inside the crater you will find stones picking out the words ' I love Jamie'!! The walk took us around 40 minutes from the seafront. The views from the top are beautiful and as you can walk right round the crater you get 360 degrees views.

Easy walk up this leftover volcano with a nice view of the south island and a walk around the perimeter and also down into the crater.

the night live is good. you get a very good welcome from the owners of buskers, if you like Elvis they have a tribute every Monday night. The best kari is at waxes. the nags head is good on the front, the Indian a couple of shops up is to die for

We enjoyed the walk so much we went twice in two days. There is plenty of places to park at the bottom to save your legs. You can walk up Mont Roja and around what used to be the crater and back down in about an hour. If you just want to walk up and down it would take about... More

We visited Montana Roja on a very windy day, this did not spoil the enjoyment but found the selfy stick a challenge! We walked from our hotel in Playa Blanca the Hesperia Playa Dorada. The round trip was about 9 miles and you can walk the board walk to the end and then cut up to the volcano which is... More

A great walk with the family - trainers are a must - don't attempt in flip flops! Take a drink as not a commercial enterprise just you at one with nature. Love the memorials and pebble art in the crater. We did one for Dad last year.

it's an easy and short hike up the old volcano. You can walk around the caldera and have great views over the coast of Lanzarote and - if the weather is good - over Fuerteventura.

If you want something different in your run, try this peak. Excellent path way at the back of the mountain, run the circumference which just over a mile! Just remember not to leave it too late in the day (11am onwards), as difficult to get past the walkers on the path.

Close to the town, super views from the top. It can be very windy up there! Quite dodgy start to the path as there are some unfinished, abandoned houses, wires and rubbish everywhere so be careful when you walk.

A hard walk up the extinct volacno at midday but worth it. Walked around the crater which is not a regular event
