We drove up from Caleta de fustre which took about 1hr. We loved it, really rough seas on one side of the lighthouse and beautiful lagoons and beaches on the other. Nothing to do other than take in the scenery

Maybe refers to someone who has been on holiday here, intending to Sea Fish off the Rocks. Unfortunately you need to get a licence from the local town hall.
