You must complete the hike if you start it, it is so worth the view and you feel like you've conquered the world once you finish. Hike it at sunrise and its beautiful!

Is very easy to get to the park. You can do it by car or by bus. The entrance to the park is NOT free. Is cheaper if you go without a car, but is not much difference in the price.

The park is nice, with bath, place to seat and to buy some food. The walk to the top is between easy and medium of difficult. Get sports shoes, not flip flop, a cup, water and maybe something for the wind because the top is windy.

The view of the island from the top is unpayable. Get your camera and goggles if you want. It's a short ride. It will take around 3 hours. It worth it!

the hike is much easier than i expected after reading some people's reviews. we managed to do it within one and half hour return trip. the challenging part i think is the staircase before the tunnel. but it is well paid off with the panoramic view, especially on a clear day.

I read a lot of reviews and was a little worried about how strenuous of a hike it would be. We didn't take the advice of so many to go early, and it was fine. Took the bus, which was perfect, stopped for extra water (important) and headed up. There are places to stop, take a breather and enjoy the view. It was a little crowded at top, but the views are worth it.

We were able to take the bus, do the hike and use the transfers to get back to our hotel, within the 2 hour transfer time limit.

Not as hard a hike as I feared...and really beautiful expansive views but they close before sunset, drats. Definitely something I highly recommend.
