  • Awesome place to visit. If you know this place you will know it's an iconic viewing area for surfing and watching the Big waves. Don't be surprised if it's busy during peak times. The small town at the top offers plenty to drink and eat and local shops. It's about 500m downhill to the viewing point. The walk down and up is worth it especially at sunset. If you have trouble walking there is an electric vehicle that you can catch a ride in for 2-3 euros. If you walk to the right you will see a slope that takes you further down to the beach and waves. Take care doing this. If you walk to the other side the view is amazing but this is cliff edges so children and dogs should be kept close. At the very end is the lighthouse and to enter will cost you 3 euros. You don't have to do this if you don't want too. If your in the area this is a must visit. I would highly recommend
  • Interesting spot for everyone who likes surfing or is interesting in surfing history. In the fort you can find the museum, which you can enter for 1€, which is really fun and as a bonus you can take a picture with the iconic lighthouse. Great visit! Was a bit cloudy, but still worth the walk!
