We loved the short walk through the gorge to the pristine beach. The girls loved climbing on the rocks and hunting for shells on the beach. The 14th century church is also a gem.

Take great care on the nail biting drive on a very rough road to get to the parking area. There is a 20 minute walk to get the beach in a dramatic setting.
