Crashing waves, surreal volcanic landscape - a demanding desert walk not for beginners. Start from the coastal village of El Golfo, a pretty place well supplied with cafes and parking. Go north along the coastal path from the village. After windy weather there can be spectacular Atlantic waves crashing into the coast for you to watch. But if you want to photograph bring a cloth to clean your cameras lens from the sea spray. Later on the walk, in the post year 1730 areas there is only dark confusion from ash and lava but here you can marvel at the hardiness of the vegetation clinging to the rock. After nearly 2k turn right a long a dirt track which heads towards Montana Quemada. Around 2.5k along this takes a left turn (the second major turn you can you find). With our poor Spanish and lack of understanding of local rules we were not clear whether or not walkers were or were not permitted here. There were several signs later that seemed to contradict each other on this point. We met absolutely no-one the Thursday we did the walk. The dirt track gives way to a foot paths over ash strewn ground. Other more official groups do come here judging by the footprints that you can see, nevertheless we strove to minimise our impact on the land
Follow the track first east and then turn round Montana Tremesana and go south east 4k to Yaiza, cafes and buses.
