The natural reserve where the Faro is located is beatiful. Along the way there are several places to go in the sea. Just one place with a small sandy beach. The rest you have to make your own way on the rocks. Takes some good...More

Cycling up to the lighthouse, there were beautiful views. The lighthouse itself was derelict and a bit spooky! There was noone around so I wouldn't go up there alone. A good path to cycle along.
