For a quick but interesting walk in the south of Lanzarote you will find this one fits the bill.
We were staying in Corralejo, at the north end of Fuerteventura, the island immediately to the south of Lanzarote. Our trip should have been easy - just get on the ferry and head up.
Ferry being tossed around, Montana Roja in the background.
But there were 40+km/h winds and the boat was late.
The next difficulty was that of holding our breakfasts down. The crew were cheery as they handed out the sick bags.
Centre of the caldera, highpoint on the other side.

Most of the hundreds of extinct volcanos on Lanzarote have a distinctive shape with one wall of the volcanic cone broken by overflowing lava. However not this one which has a complete caldera.
This is a view from the west of Hache Grande, 562m, nearby in the south of Lanzarote. The plain that it rises from is known as the Rubicon and was part of the island covered by lava in the eruptions of 1730 to 1736.

This is not a complex or long climb with the top at just 141m. There is a great view of the south west of Lanzarote, the north of Fuerteventura and the channel to it "La Bocayna"
Near the highpoint the track is easy to walk on. The urbanisation is part of Playa Blanca.

Returning is relatively easy.
