Excellent! 2 different trails Easy and...really hard. Choose wisely. Bring water and REAL shoes for hiking. The views are amazing.

There is a superb view from this hill towards the bays, and the contrast of the dessert meeting with the sea is gorgeous. Highly recommended to see the sunset from the "mirador".
