The views from the point and from the second floor are great, take a camera. Weekends have music and the restaurant is open. It is closed during the week.

This is a nice construction outside Barranquilla, it offers a nice view of the cliffs and the Caribbean sea, it also has a nice restaurant.

This place has the most amazing views to witness a sundown in Barranquilla… the wind, the sea, the air… I didn't get to do much other than just watch the spectacular caribbean sun meet the horizon. Great place to just chill.
