Nice and spectacular, going down in the bottom of this old vulcano. Very nice nature with a lot of flowers, trees and a lonely farmer there. You need good shoes with good soles, and water to drink

This gorge or wee canyon like crater is really worth a visit. Not that far from the city you are quickly in a peaceful place.

This place was amazing. It has great view over the crater and water. You can walk around the whole place in about 1.5 hours. Very beautiful and worth the effort.

As somebody of the reviewers already mentioned - this is just one big hole. It was especially disappointing on the day we went there because it was very cloudy and cold, and when we saw this "attraction" we walked down it a little bit and soon gave up, which was a good decision because it is very steep and the...

Nice view, it's worth a 10-15min stop if you are in the area. Besides yhe crater, you can see las palmas afar. I haven't seen any hiking path though, only the road

Make a point of driving to this caldera. ....the views of Las Palmas is fabulous. There is a golf course on the slopes of this extinct volcanic caldera which is a beautiful site to behold from the top and looks idyllic for playing in this perfect spot.

We hiked down to the bottom of the Caldera, around the bottom, back up out and then around the rim. The hike out was hot and arduous but the whole walk had great views in a interesting area.

The centre of this island is stunning: rugged, mountainous views abound so it is well worth hiring a car to see as much as you can.

Bandama was included in our tour booked through Cruising Excursions. The road up to the top is winding and narrow. Glad that someone else was driving as it can be a tight squeeze if vehicles need to pass. There are views of Las Palmas from where the vehicles drop people off. To view the caldera you need to climb ~20... More

Travelled here on local bus. Lovely scenery en route and easy to spot where to get off though driver kindly let us know too! Magical views all around. Walk down took us 30 minutes. We wore trainers and both had a little slip - the volcanic gravel slides over rocks easily! - but not a real problem. Inside is so... More
