Nice trip if you don´t want to go driving for a whole day. This is not so far up in the mountains - but you get a really good view.

Nice drive to the peak for 360 degree views avoid the overpriced cafe Caldera, misnamed as the caldera is round the other side of the hill.

Even if you don't go for a walk, we didn't have time, it is worth going up to the viewpoint for views over the crater and over the island. Pick a clear day to take advantage of the fine views.

Well made paths make the walk fairly safe, just a few rather slippy gravel bits on the steeper slopes. Being semi-desert here, there is no grass, just bare rock and loose stones/gravel. The views down into the crater and the path down into it are...More

We intended to walk around the rim but as it was getting later in the day than we intended I no longer wanted to! I thought it looked a bit too precarious for me. Instead we looked from the top and took pictures.

Hi. I got off at the stop by the restaurant. When you see the brown sign for the Caldera you’re there - I missed my stop as I was looking to see the Caldera and it isn’t immmediately visible until you get off the bus!
