  • There is a nice view over the water, you can go hiking, you can collect mussels at the beach. Moreover, it is a fantastic motif for photos.
  • Not much left of it but the views are fantastic
  • really great castle at the coast. you can walk in many areas of the castle and start a little adventure because you must climb sometimes. also it's nice to walk at the stoney beach under the castle.
  • Not a lot of castle left but it's open to the public, doesn't cost anything and usually pretty quiet. Great views and a great photo op.
