We walked along the beach from our hotel to Castle. Castle admission is reasonable and view from castle is breath taking. They are not open 7days. I can't remember which day is close....so better check before you visit castle. My friends couldn't get to see.

The castle is attractive from the outside. The inside is mostly just a museum. The best part of this site is the outside and will take about 30 minutes at most to see.
