    A very challenging hike with steep gradient and some very difficult terrain. Please make sure you wear long trousers as there is some areas with very sharp bushes which are unavoidable.

    Nice trail if you like to get off the beaten path a little. Maybe some parts little rough on summer due to vegetation

    Wonderful trail with perfect scenery. Food only at the lighthouse. Bring enough water and good shoes. I mean it, the hike is not difficult apart from a tricky descent to the beach, but mostly rocky. I'd recommend hiking ...
