Don't think "it is a long walk" just do it and suck in the view. The people are great, the walk is great and when you get to the top, it is so worth it.

The way up was nice, but the tower itself is not worth to see. They build a solar plant with high walls so you can only have one direction to see the sea.

The view is very relaxing and peaceful as you watch the ships pass by the nearby Nautical highway. Birds singing and tweeting by the cliff where they peacefully built their nests. We watched the sunset here but didn't wait the sun to go down fully...More

As this island has electricity only between 6 and 9:30, you are bound to go to sleep before 10 pm. And you will be woken up by the roosters (number of which may actually exceed number of inhabitants of the island or at least it...More
