We were passing by so thought we’d pop in. We paid the €2.5 each and were pointed towards the museum which was 200m on the right, just at the cliff top. The actual museum is a saucer shape building embedded in the landscape. (We found...More

Many of the reviews already written rate this site poor or even terrible, simply because it's closed at the weekend - both the sign outside and the web site indicate that it is NOT open at the weekend. The ruins are very old - they...More

We walked across Coral Bay beach & up the steps to get to this piece of headland that once housed a busy bronze age settlement . On the way we noticed the freshwater springs along the beach which first enticed the settlers to live here...More

Staying locally we wandered down the road in Coral Bay that indicated a museum...paid 1.5 Euros each, (pensioners rate) and walked in to find some ruins indicating that houses had been built on the site, but no information about them. However, we decided to walk...More

Not really a lot to see here, but the headland location is stunning. The interesting underground museum is the high-point. Small but very informative, and weird modernistic design like a grounded flying saucer !! 2.50 Euros to get in (half price for over-65's) and worth...More

Very easy to find. Well signposted. The actual site is ok. Difficult to work out. The museum was disappointing. A lot of reading in frames around the wall with references to the cases "behind you". These cases were not there. Instead there were 3 indentations...More

The site is easy enough to find, and has a nice setting on a rocky headland. While the cyclopean walling across the neck of the headland is very impressive, the remains of the structures are not.It is very difficult to make out individual structures from...More

Well signposted from the main road and accessed down a path, this is a large site but not with a huge amount to see being Bronze Age. There are outlines of buildings and random large stone, shards of pottery and a modernistic museum with excellent...More
