The walk up the mountain is manageable for the less fit if started early in the morning before the heat builds up. However it can be tricky descending as the path is very crumbly volcanic rock and can be very slippy and dusty. Alternative routes are posted on the level which take you by rocky outcrops and stacks - easier... More

Nice easy little mountain to climb with some great views at the top. We walked here from El Medano and then around the base of it. It was fairly easy going up and took us about 20 mins. Coming down however took a little longer as it was rather slippy in places where the loose stones are. I was wearing... More

The Montana Roja or Rosy Mountain to all the English visitors, is a heap of volcanic ash and debris at the far end of the matchless El Medano beach in Tenerife. It is a World Heritage Site because of its uniquely adapted flora and fauna to its harsh maritime environment. What grows here can be found elsewhere along the coastline,... More

I made it with my wife and 3 children (4, 7, 9 year old) in less than 2.5 hour. This was just the right plan for them. The path is little slippy with a lot of rocks at some point but it was OK. Of course, I carried the smallest child on my shoulders during a part of the walk.... More

This was one of the stops on our grand island tour - the scenery was lovely all around. Very peaceful being atop these mountains, I would recommend going to see them, if only just for the peace, quiet and incredible photos you'll take :)

We cycled to the volcano, then walked up to the crater, from which you get superb views of the coast. An enjoyable and cheap activity!

The photo that goes with this review,sums up our name for the sight whenever we visit Fuerteventura . LA STUPENDA is the name that springs to mind when we pass. Barrie & Gilly

this is the large red volcano mountain you see when approaching Corralejo, this mountain changes everytime i see it. The bright red colours change variations throughout the year. Just beyond the mountain you will come across the famous sand dunes.

This mountain - extinct volcano - is, to my mind, the guardian of Corralejo. Whenever I return from travelling and pass La Montana Roja I expel a breath that I didn't know I was holding and feel at home once more. Once you've passed the mountain the seascape on the right hand side is spectacular - colours that its difficult... More
