  • We took this drive one evening around 4pm, the road was very quiet so it was nice to pull in at ease and enjoy the scenery whenever we wanted. Its a really beautiful drive with some amazing scenery.  more »
  • What a drive. It is breathtaking. The views get better and better the more you drive. Every corner is another excitement. Keep stopping to take it all in. No rush. Pull in and allow cars to get past.  more »
  • Breathtaking scenery and stunning views. Lot of places to stop and many with ancient history. Seagulls will actually fly in and eat bread from your hands.  more »
