A very easy hike to the entrance of the hole through the mountain. If the weather is good you will get a beautiful view of the small islands out at sea in the view. Well worth a trip and a hike to see.

The mountain literally has a hole right through it, which is the only feature that makes it special. Climbing it is no big deal, around 200 meters, and the round hike takes an hour. Some great views of the islands that dot the sea from...More
