Enjoy the most beautiful sunset in an historic castle known as the Hercules Temple. When the tide is low you can even walk and visit the castle.

I like everithing. I recommend goung there by kayak, that you can rent very cheap for 2 hours at Sancti Petri. Avoid windy days.

Be careful in very windy days. The views from the castle are fantastic. Better going by kayak than by swimming.
