You’ll get the geography lesson of your life at Timanfaya National Park, which is about a 20-minute drive from Puerto del Carmen. Two hundred years ago, the land here was used for farming. But, in the 18th century, a massive volcanic eruption changed the face of it forever. Today, it’s home to more than a hundred semi-dormant volcanoes. Grab a bite to eat at El Diablo restaurant, where chefs harness the park’s geothermal activity to cook your food.
