We both loved our day at this stunning location. Enjoy the near vertical decent off the cliffs in a cable car - if you don’t like heights it’s comforting to know that the cable car is very smooth - and enjoy the stunning views! As...More

The cable car down (10€/person) and up was an amazing experience. Down at the beach you have a really good restaurant, that does delicious grilled vegetables, because the vegetables are grown in their own garden. Can only recommend it.

Cable car down (10 euro per person). Down is a beautiful Pebble Beach. Amazing views. The view at the cliff is astonishing. There is a restaurant, which is ok. Nothing more, nothing less.
