Beautiful settings, nice hike in and around the crater. Some part are really steep so be prepared, no flip-flops.

Great views into this relatively new (in volcanic terms) caldera. Spoiled only by the tennis courts (!!!) built inside the caldera. A nice hike with some steep ascent / descent some of which is in fine sand like ash (imagine walking up a sand dune)....More

Since we only live about 15 minutes away and can see it from our backyard we thought we would drive there to see. Just before midday , nice views, easy to find. Best to go at noon on a sunny day.

The caldera is not as big as the most known, but it had almost killed that island in the past. The path to watch it is close to the golf club but don't forget to climb or drive up to the nearest mountain.
