I made several cycle rides along this coast and the scenery was fabulous. I saw flocks of pelicans, numerous others sea birds and even a little eagle. Good cycle paths and also a protected area along the road.

The marine park has stunning azure coloured water and is popular with windsurfers and kite surfers. There’s great scenery to look at (ocean and islands off the coast) however not really the best beaches here for sunbathing or swimming.

Hi, You can walk around the Island without paying, if you get to the island yourself. The cost is for the ferry and attractions on the island. Nice places for picnics too.

Yes, the island requires a small boat trip, and also gives you entry to penguin show.
