  • We were in the afternoon, great surfing atmosphere; sunsets and spectacular sunsets. Environment friendly and very clean, both the Park and the public baths. Seems to be that there is a bar or place of entertainment but not is if by date or by the hour, was closed.

  • Most beautiful spot on the island to watch the sunset. Breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean on either side and lots of space to sit on either benches or the grass. Perfect for a picnic and watching the sunset or just watching the surfers on both sides during the day.
  • Beautifull sunsets, clean area and sanitaries are clean. Fui domingo y habian Artesanias.
  • Great "park" to enjoy breathtaking sunset view! Nice lighthouse too!
  • The view is spectacular no matter where you look! The grounds are well maintained with a photo opportunity everywhere!
  • It's a good lookout point to catch the sun setting over the horizon.
