A lovely spot to walk out on to, enjoy the clear green water. Didn't go inside, I think you may have to pay. Signage was all in Spanish would have been nice in English too.

Some good views looking back towards Arrecife, there isn't much in the museum and non of the displays are in English, so a bit overrated at 4 euro.

Unfortunately every thing was in Spanish with no translation, it could be so much better for foreign tourists. OAP's can get in free of charge if they have proof of age

A wonderful walk out to this attraction and I'm sure it would be worth taking a look around inside - 3 Euros isn't going to break you. Unfortunately we decided not to go in after meeting one of the rudest members of staff we've experienced....More

This is well worth the walk. Views across the harbour are great and the inside of the castle contains interesting displays. The views from the ramparts are great. As you go in, you are warned that none of the information is in English but you...More
