Stunning beautiful spot, a must see definitely. A beautiful rock surrounded by ocean, easy to access and beautiful scenery all over the place. The ermitage is a small church with a not so beautiful, recent addition to the initial building, and sadly closed when we visited. We spent there 2 very relaxing hours.

Impressive it's the word! You never expect a church in the beach, mostly when during summer people really use the grass around to lay down! It's weird! It's nice! It's very beautiful... I "got lost" around the beach and the landscape is breathtaking! If you are around the north cost of Spain you should walk by! Come with comfy shoes!
