Even if you don’t want to walk along the river bed you must walk the west side of the river from the road bridge down to the sea. It is a pleasant stroll with plenty to see as you wonder alonside the small river. There...More

Brilliant day, go early because it takes a few hours to get up and down. Take a packed lunch too, no need for drinks and you wade through natural spring water so a bottle is necessary. Good footwear is important but don’t wear your best...More
