Stunning backdrop.

The whole scenery of Lanzarote is unique and special and Monana Roja is typical, being a lovely backdrop to Playa BLanca. You can walk up it, but it isn't easy!

Good panorama vistas A lovely unexpected backdrop which is quite walkable. Only 171 metres above sea level, but looks much bigger

We walked up this volcano from the road straight up the side, not using the designated footpath. It was very tough and to be frank, fairly dangerous! Once at the top the views are absolutely amazing and there is a trodden path around the crater which you are able to walk around and take in the views in from all... More

The actual climb to the top is the hard part, but once you're up there it's an easy walk & the views are amazing. Worth doing first thing in the morning before it gets too hot.

Right behind our hotel (Alyssa Suites) so couldn't resist walking up. You will need decent footwear, trainers with decent grips, fine. Allow about 40 mins to walk up and down 1hr 20 if you want to walk round crater (well worth it). My wife doesn't like heights, managed fine, couple of narrow sections when you walk around crater, where she... More

Went up here on christmas eve with my family including young children. Id say it takes longer to walk here from playa blanca than it does to climb the volcano. As you can imagine there are great views, and when was the last time you climbed a volcano? The walk isnt too steep but it can be rather windy and... More

Find the path which leads to the top rather than walking up the steep side as I did first time I went up! Nice to have a look to the top and not a difficult climb. You can walk around and into the crater and can see for miles around. Nice to run up and around the crater first thing... More

Although it may look daunting it is reasonably easy to ascend as long as you keep your eyes on what you are doing and only stop to admire the views. The path is well trodden once you have located where the start is. A mobile aerial is the marker for the southern starting point and once on it the path... More

Drive to the base and walk up. Some folk were jogging up. The caldera is easily visible and can be walked around in 30 minutes.

Fantastic views and a lovely walk up. Not to steep and suits most abilities. Plenty of places to stop for a break. You can walk down into the crater and also all around the edge of the volcano. Well worth a visit if you are staying in Playa Blanca. Took us 15 minutes to walk up it from the base... More
