Montana Roja, Playa Blanca
(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.

  • The rise is accessible, each to his pace, even if littered with many stones. She is first on the road, to the East of the Montana Roja and then by a path which the beginning is located at the foot of the GSM tower. At the top, the path can circumnavigate the old crater, and discover a magnificent panorama of the entire region, and the ocean. Interesting trip to do at end of stay, so have fun finding places frequented during the stay.
