  • Standing up by the castle you can overlook the big wave surfers and there tow-in drivers on jet bikes. Does get very busy and is a very popular thing to do. Also a big wave surfing museum.

  • Today is 31.3.2022 and the weather is lovely. Windy but not bad at all. Not many people. Some fishermen on the beach, few couples walking their dogs, two boats in the sea...just a pleasant walk with cooler wind but not as bad as we will get in England.
  • Perfect in winter to see huge waves like nowhere else. Wave breaks sounds like a storm and in sunny days almost every wave creates a rainbow. Perfect to watch from the cliff above. Hope to try the water in summer too!
