Pretty well known in Playa Blanca the extinct volcano of Montaña Roja (Red Mountain) dominates one side of the resort. Its a sight to see especially at sunset as the rock is red in colour. Very popular with hiker that like to climb and take in the panoramic views. Its a short climb but very steep and a great photo opportunity awaits at the top with views of the south of Lanzarote and the Atlantic ocean stretching across to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura. Some people have said that there have been mysterious signs of UFO’s!
