Good for people who do not do a lot of hiking. Very easy and has a lot of good views. It's not an all day activity and will probably kill a couple of hours.

Nice easy walk to the top and around the crater which is nearly 1km across. If you go down and walk along the coast there are some little secluded coves.

Energetic walk from car park to top. Took our time, enjoyed the views en route and took about 45 minutes to reach the top. Went early morning to avoid the heat, took lots of water and had good footwear which is important. Saw one lady...More

A four minutes by car from Medano's city center there is a hidden dream beach. Perfect for families, couples, animals and surfing will take your breath away with its great swallow waters, views from the mountain and peaceful environment. Saying that, avoid in windy days...More

Beautiful views and a great place for walks and morning runs. Unfortunately to get there you must pass a rocky road, so it's impossible to run to fast
