Head for the telecoms tower for the start. Can be done in trainers. If you want decent photos of Playa Blanca leave it as late as possible in the day as the direction is due south.

In my opinion this is the best living place in Lanzarote. Beautiful villas, wonderful sightseeing of the ocean, very calm and quiet. A beautiful place to live

Very nice place and crater but unfortunate with all the names etc being created in the crater. You can walk around the whole crater which is very nice.

Its a 45 min hike well worthwhile. Not to steep and quite easy. Great views. Remember to bring something to drink.

This is well worth the long walk up a steep path. The views are absolutely stunning. It is so peaceful.

This is a nice easy walk from Playa Blanca, only gets steep for the last 15-20 mins. Views are great. We went up in the early morning, but I imagine a sunset walk would be spectacular, don't forget a torch though.

Hello. Yes that is the right location. It's a lovely walk. Fairly steep to start but well worth it. Views from the top are breathtaking. We took a picnic. From there the sunsets are amazing too. Hope you enjoyed it.

30 minutes walk to the base then another 20 to the top depending on your fitness but we'll worth the trip as the views are spectacular
