Yeah it's a nice view of a beach but it's nothing amazing. Would prefer to be at the beach! Also def get a scooter as taxis are really expensive up there. Also don't walk!!!

Always a busy place to stop but always a great photo opportunity If on a moped make sure it's above 100cc or you won't get up the hills You need a 125 !
