Ran up this volcano twice while staying in Playa Blanca; just the right distance with a circuit of the crater included. Exhilarating and a great viewpoint over Playa Blanca and towards Fuerteventura.

If in Playa Blanca at any time, the climb up to the crater of the volcano is well worth the effort. The views all around are stunning. The climb and descent are not particularly steep, but a little care is needed on parts of the...More

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
