Good coastal walk, with good views and places to stop and sit. Good snacks at the bar just to the west of the lighthouse.

Great trip for a nice walk to a stunning location with fabulous views and an impressive, and free, art exhibition in the lighthouse itself. Well worth going.

Along the coast of the Parque de Matalenñas the view is breathtaking and lots of people were enjoying their walk. Found inner calmness just by seeing the Atlantic ocean on the cape.
