Takes about 40 minutes to get to the top on a well defined path. You can walk around the top of the crater and get good 360 views across southern end of the island.

To answer your question, if you are fit enough to walk to the top, the walk to the start is definitely within walking distance. The signage is not too brilliant but, in fact, it does become fairly obvious which path to... More
