  • We have followed the signs with viewpoint to the top of the mountain. From there you look at the heads and the other side to Coney Glen. Very nice view, could look a long time!

  • It's amazing the view from those cliffs! There are some beautiful playitas, but the water looked pretty brava. A super photogenic place, wonderful. It goes up with the car and there are many viewpoints, all cute and with a more beautiful view than the other. You don't have to be missed.
