Beautiful day and views. €3 to park and then a further £3 to get up there but it is well worth a visit if you are in the area, we really enjoyed our visit here

Wonderful views from the top but can be a bit windy so watch your hats! As another reviewer has said I think charging for the car park and entrance is a bit greedy. I will still give it 5 stars though.

The rock itself is just that; a weathered lump of granite, but the views are great. They have made some effort by building a good footpath and some 'nature trail' signs at the various trees along the path.

They required not even entrance (3,00 EUR each) for a nature phenomen. They also charge additionally 3,00 EUR for parking. Sorry, but this is greedy!

Capo d'Orso offers great views at a nice setting, walk to the rock is not so difficult. Te total overview on the rock is better at some distance.

Some magic about this place. Advertised as bear rock, the only thing you can see is the surroundings. Which are great. The bear, not so much. Need a helicopter to see what they sell you and that is disappointing

We did not walk right to the 'Bear' but the views are amazing, you get a good view from the sea where the bear is standing guard over the bay. The whole area is stunning.

Around Euro 2 for the parking fee and Euro 2 /person for the entrance. Amazing view surrounding the area, you need to climb some stairs to reach the top. There was one English speaker lady will assist you and explain the history of the rocks as soon as you reach there. nice

Worth walking up to. Lovely local restaurant with great homemade dishes just at the base of the bear.

This was close to where we were staying so walked up. As before you do not get good all round view of the bear but get good views of surrounding areas. We were trying to wait to see the sun set but had to leave earlier. It is worth a trip if not too far away.
