An extremely interesting nature formation in itself, but unfortunately spoiled by the mass of people there. Very few opportunities to take pictures as there are people there, people here and people everywhere. On the other hand do I have the right to complain as I was one of them? Nevertheless a disappointment as our preconception was that there would be... More

Great views of the sea arches walking above the beach, if you want to actually in the beach it appears got need to get something in advance maybe online? We didn't have it so couldn't go down to the beach. It was very busy and touristy and car parks were quiet full but I would say this is not to... More

Very picturesque and therefore very busy!! Make sure you get a permit on line in advance, or you won't be allowed access to the beach. The permit is free, but only a certain number are issued each day. To see all the rock formations and caves go at low tide and up to an hour and a half either side... More

Better to be registered via internet. We were not registered but the lady at the entrance with tablet registered us immediately. We only waited for few more minutes in a queue. Security men were very kind and helped us to bring the wheelchair downstairs.

but book on the official website. They only let limited numbers of people visit the beach. Take everything you will need with you onto the beach, there are no shops of any kind!

We spent about 45 minutes here during sunset and it was absolutely beautiful. It is a must see attraction. The rock formations and the ocean were beautiful in the light of the setting sun. A beautiful, romantic place that I would surely visit again.

A must visit if you are in the area! Really beautiful scenery... Pity we couldn't take the dogs down to the beach but you can still enjoy the views and see the Catedrales from the road
