One of our favorite places to stop and take a moment to breath the fresh air and get back into reality. Awesome views, magical charisma and solitude.

Very nice little beach for watching the sunset of having a meal of Italian with a view. Not too crowed ( at least when we were there ) and they have parking close by.
