  • This is one of the most beautiful coasts I have seen. Especially in late spring when nature is in full bloom. The variety of colours is amazing. Walk around a bit, it's really worth while.
  • An absolutely stunning lighthouse overlooking a majestic coast line! Photos do not do it any justice at all! A must see
