Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
Created by a long-ago coastal eruption, Montana Roja looms 171 m (561 ft) over the far southern coast of Lanzarote, providing spectacular views of the glimmering Atlantic. The 166-hectare (410-acre) reserve surrounding the red volcano includes Leocadio Machado and La Tejita beaches--each of which runs for 3 km (1.8 mi)--salt water pools, and wetlands frequented by various bird species. The Spanish government has declared the area a special nature reserve, so do your part to help preserve its pristine character. Put Montana Roja and other Lanzarote attractions into our Lanzarote vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
