About a half hour walk from town (maybe 40min.) Gorgeous views up top and a rocky beach below. Stairs and rocks not too difficult with sturdy shoes. So pretty. Less than two hours round trip. Nice way to work off our B&B’s champagne brunch!

Absolutely breathtaking!!! All those steps make it worth it!!! I didn't go down on the beach ( I wasn't sure about my footing) but it didn't take away from anything.
