Why locals love it

It's a romantic getaway for the locals. The scenery, especially during sunsets, will melt any girls heart. It's a lovely place for a walk around the seaside and throwing pebbles.

Why you should visit it

The area is lovely, the birdlife is fascinating and when the tides are right you can walk up to the lighthouse. Beware, if the tides are wrong you could get stuck there.

Special tip

Close by is a small footbath carved into a rock. Locals can be seen there drinking beverages during sunny days.

You really neutralize yourself going there and watch the waves coming unbridled from the North Atlantic Sea. The view is astonishing and the peace is endless.
