Being an island formed by a volcano, many of the geographical features of Gran Canaria still bear the scars of volcanic activity over the millennia. A caldera is a shallow crater caused by volcanic eruptions and there are many of them on the island.
This particular caldera is on the way to Santa Luc’a de Tirajana, about a 45 minute drive north of Playa del Ingles on the south coast. Interesting geographical landmarks and countryside such as this are one of the reasons why hiring a car for at least part of your stay is a great idea. Simply driving around Gran Canaria to see what you can find is a lot of fun, and the island has an excellent road network to take advantage of.
