  • Don't know who managed to call his island-wide toe, closer to the city built by the sea-totally wild, unless you count a couple of challenging tracks in the rocks. The most interesting thing on the Cape-the remains of the coastal fortifications of war with Japan. No tourist infrastructure and there is only an independent mastering on slippery rocks.
