Ok, on December 25th it was rainy, but one day later, it was really beautiful! You can even see the mountains around Denia...

I love the faro at Berberia. It's at the southern tip of the island, accessible by the road that runs from Sant Francesc past the Es Cap bar and shop (the nearest place to get water and fruit!).

At the end of a long narrow single track road this now automated lighthouse is in the most desolate part of the island. Very beautiful just rather sad that some p***s have decided to spray graffiti on the white walls. Unlike the lighthouse at La Mola there is no cafe. But on the way back take a left at the... More
