If you're in the area, it's well worth going to St Anthony's and taking the walk along the line of the various monuments.

A lovely find a few miles from the beach. I just walked around the grounds and admired the architecture and the sights. I was peaceful and relaxing. There is a small chapel for reflection and prayer.
