We took the Sterna trail, about a 7km walk. Take some sunscreen and a camera. Beautiful nature, lots of birds and a long walk on the beach. Stunning place if you love the outdoors

Beautiful scenery with lots of birdlife. There is a small entrance fee and limited facilities (toilets) by the gate with a picnic area by the water. The walks are breathtaking through unspoilt countryside and beautiful beaches. There is also a quite demanding, marked trail through...More
