Walked up once and went by train once! Superb views and amazing sunsets! The train trip was hilarious! Very bumpy and fast!

A nice walk from the City centre, about half an hour. Later in summer there will be lots of flowers blooming, will make a great view. The little train also brings people jo there, but a walk could be a great break from the beach.
