Long Description:
It is recommended to walk out on the tip in the caldera from where you have the caldera almost all around you. And also to walk to Pico Fuente Nueva right next to the observatorio. It's not possible to buy anything on the top, so bring water and food if you want to spend some time on top of La Palma.
