Well worth the drive, not far from Las Palmas.If you have a couple of hours to spare and enjoy walking, then provided you wear suitable shoes a walk around the upper rim of the crater is fun, only not if you suffer with vertigo!

We hired a car for a couple of days and on our way back from Las Palmas to Maspalomas we took a detour to see the Caldera de Bandama. The road is very twisty and narrow and you can hope you don't meet a bus! However when you reach the top stop for a coffee or even lunch at the... More

Visited on a coach trip was amazing journey to reach the volcano through narrow roads around olive groves and landscapes. When at the top the views are incredible down into the crater and across golf courses and out to the sea. Apparently was told by our guide that a family and old man lived in the bottom of the crater... More

Worth the drive, take layers, can be cooler at the top, there is a walk to the bottom, which takes about half an hour. Take some water.

Well worth doing especially on a clear day....awesome views over the north end of the island. Crater itself is nothing really impressive ...you can walk to the bottom. Good road to the top...easy to drive

Took the 311 bus from san telmo station which took us 45 mins and was £1.55 one way. Then hiked down to the centre of the crater which was manageable with trainers. Pleasant walk with lovely views and some areas with interesting volcanic rock features. Spent 2 hrs walking in total before heading back on the bus. Note - the... More

Great place easy to see from the top with the help of information boards, what has happened. It is quite spectacular, take water if you descend into it at it is windless and very hot.

Rather than walking to the base like everyone else, we walked around the rim of the caldera. Start by walking up the road to the top of the hill (Pico de Bandama) then as the road bends left, turn right onto the marked trail. It finishes by the golf club. The views were stunning all the way around the rim... More

We went on a coach trip here. The journey up and down was a bit hairy, but the driver knew what he was doing. The building at the top was closed, but apparently has little in it anyway. The views were obscured a bit by mist the day we went, but still the views were impressive. Take your cameras.
