The beach is beautiful but the view from the cliffs is amazing! You can walk on the cliffs and park the car on the top. The drive is through nice old town.

Bring an inflatable swim aid if you want to swim to the cave. Go early in the morning...before 10.am. and beat the crowd. There was one other couple there when we arrived. It’s truly one of the most beautiful caves you will EVER visit. The...More

Try to book online because it is overbooked for the same day if you arrive at the beach after 12..... swimming is 15 mins at most but beware chill ocean water.
