  • This place was really amazing!! We were, most unfortunately, not there when the waves were big, but I would come back again to see them. The whole stretch of town along the cliff was breathtaking! There was a great little shop right near the top of the funicular where a fella was hand crafting traditional fishing boats. They were beautiful!! The information on how the giant waves form and the surfers that ride them was very interesting! The beach to the north of the lighthouse was very cool. You could see the striations in the sand of where different heights of waves wash up to. Very, very cool!! Well worth going out of your way to see!
  • Interesting spot for everyone who likes surfing or is interesting in surfing history. In the fort you can find the museum, which you can enter for 1€, which is really fun and as a bonus you can take a picture with the iconic lighthouse. Great visit! Was a bit cloudy, but still worth the walk!
