The best place to go for a beautiful sunset. Spectacular views over Juan Griego and the beaches. Very peaceful.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I didn't go in the fort, but I passed by it and I found it very beautiful. It's a beuatiful scenery the beaches, the sunset and this fort in the middle of it all. Probably the most beautiful place in Juan Griego.

“relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

A great place to just relax and watch the sun go down. Just a short walk uphill from casa karina and you can just relax and maybe even get a treat of live entertainment

Great place to watch the sunset ... a little bit overcrowded on weekends ... take a bottle of wine or beer and enjoy !

“Great view but not friendly environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I expected a lot more from this place. But since I arrived I didn't like the experience of a bunch of kids trying to "tell me a 5 minute story" for an astronomical price. They had a very bad attitude. There is no history or like a mini museum to learn more about it. However the view is amazing, it's worth the trip, but stay there to see the sunset and go.
