  • We were surprised that we could go with a modern, very new cable car down, had we gerechent with an old elevator. The ride was quiet and swing free! Before that, you need not be afraid! On the way down you get to great views of the cliffs look. Come down, you can take a stroll through the lush gardens (with many different mango trees, avocado trees, banana trees, vines and many more), relax on the beach and/or local restaurant serves delicacies. Have mango ice cream given among others us... the creamy sorbet was a dream! The rest in this small paradise is divine... Plan enough time that above is possible at 18:00 last gondola ride after. Round-trip per person 10 EUR.

  • We went twice with the cable car down. It is in a different, tropical-looking world between the banana trees, mango trees, avocado trees, passion fruit, wine pergolas and papaya plantations. Bathing is not easy, but possible in calm weather. The restaurant is surprisingly high quality and yet affordable. A place to relax and unwind.

  • The glass elevator is no longer in operation, instead a cable car 300m driving a downhill in the Idyll. (Per person € 10) Come down a path through the plantations leads to the beach and restaurant. When we were there, hardly anything was going on. An idyllic quiet place. Well, we were 2-3 hours at the Café, where you have to say that the operation is very bad. (Unfriendly, long waiting times, if ever again someone comes back) There are below in the Bay at the pier on sunbeds and umbrellas for rent. In the water to get the very stony and not simple beaches, or stairs of the jetty. Who wants to spend a quiet day on the water, is right here!
