Wonderful walking along the waterfront. Outstanding views both to the left and to the right. Walk over this bridge out to this outcrop where a statute of the Virgin Mary and Child sits high up.

Beautiful vista of the coastline. The rocks are magnificent. The labyrinth of walkways leading to and from this point are interesting and lead you to lovely private areas to sit, think, and take in nature.
