By car, around a 5-10 minute drive from Palau. Walking may take a while as it's all uphill, so transport is recommended. Gorgeous views, definitely something worth visiting and you'll get some lovely photos & views of Palau, Porto Raphael & Madalena.

A hot climb along easy tracks to this incredible landmark are worth the trip. A bizarre bear-shaped giant rock guards the entrance to the bay and is visible from the sea for miles away, seen clearly from the approaches to the Maddalene Islands. Other rocks took form in our fanciful minds as dinosaurs, hares and crab claws. Brilliant.

Amazing what Mother Nature can create, we just drove by to take a photo but there is a tour that you can take to walk to the top it will cost you about 2 Euros or you can get a package deal for 5 that will give you access to the museum & the Fort.

Stumbled across this attraction by accident. The bear rock is a landmark but you can only see the actual shape of the bear from the sea side. Still a nice climb with a wonderful view at the top.
