The walk was nice around the top of the crater. At times I found the walk a bit nerve wracking but it was worth the view .

In comparison to many other visitors we walked down immediately and it was worth it. The view was great, the "trip" down was easy and pleasant with occasional stops to enjoy the view and the vegetation. The trip up was a bit more difficult, so it is advisable to take such a walk when it is not too hot. Another... More

It takes 1.5 hrs to walk around the whole crater. It is like a ridge. Views on both sides change all the time.

Good for hiking from Santana brigda , very good views when walking up and a beautiful sight on top as you can see las Palmas - specially if you go on the evening it makes fantastic as you can see las Palmas with lights.

Beautiful views from the top to the crater and Gran Canary. Perfect trekking opportunity. You can go to the bottom of the crater or do a full circle on the top.

A nice view from the top but if you have ever been to Timafanya in Lanzarote then this may disappoint. The crater has now overgrown with vegetation so you cannot see any features but the view is great

really nice spot with magnificient view. Come early because the parking spot is quite small and it is full of cars. a bit lower there is a caffee. You can see all over the east of gran canaria island. Worth the trip

Worth visiting for the amazing views of the crater and the island. We didn't have time to walk down into the crater but I'm sure that would be lovely to do. There was someone selling jewellery made from lava and so I brought home a memory of our visit!

Lovely nature and scenery. Great 1.2 km walk down. Runkeeper recorded 380m down and than up. Walk down can be a little challenging because of loose sand and small rocks which can be slippery. Loved strolling down in the crater and having picnic. Parking the car can be a bit difficult but you can park at the golf course a... More
