Day started off a bit cloudy so seemed like the perfect opportunity for a walk up the mountain. WOW, the views were amazing, walked around the crater and took about 3 million photos (slight exaggeration there). Didn't take very long to go up and down, but its not a race anyway, perfect free entertainment

A bit of a climb but worth it for the views. Suggest you do this early morning. There are well walked paths to follow to get to the top and then you can walk round the rim of the extinct volcano. In early spring there are beautiful plants flowering

Hardest part was finding the track, drove around a lot you need to take road opposite paradise island hotel and there are two rocks with 'volcano' and a arrow pointing up. The path is not too hard a little steep but we got up in 15 minutes, walked right around the crater which was about 25 minutes. The view was... More

This is a volcano located above playa blanca, it is totally free to walk up and takes about 3 hours starting from the base including a circuit of the crater, fantastic views over the whole of the South part of the island, well worth a walk away from your sunbed!

Certainly worth a walk up when in playa blanca. It's a relatively easy walk up an easy to follow path. Once you get to the top you can look down into the crater of this volcano or walk down into it. I would recommend walking the ridge and enjoying the views. With a couple of hours and reasonable ability to... More

We went up on a windy day but it was well worth getting blown around a bit on the top. The path leads up to the top and all the way around the crater and even down into the crater. On our way down we passed a family wearing flip flops with both parents carrying a toddler on their shoulders... More

Make the effort to walk up to the top of this old volcano... the views are amazing, but do take a jumper or light jacket with you as it can get pretty windy up there. Views for miles around.

Walked from our hotel in Playa Blanca, up the track and around the crater, approximately 1.5 hours in total with photo stops. Great views from the top, but its windy up there...watch out for your hats.
