    By topic enthusiast, I couldn't miss this opportunity the street to get to the beach is really narrow and dangerous, just the more daring will manage to get to the beach. Before the village where you will find the beach (hidden) there is no indication for which you will have to rely on the nose and luck until you find a road truly disturbing sign dinosaur footprints. Access is free but affected by weather conditions. Before arriving at the village there is a small museum that shows the history of the discovery and any exhibit, but you can avoid to see it because it's really tiny and for informational purposes only. The prints come to light only at low tide (so check before the tides!) and to get you climb over many rocks slippery and dangerous so be very careful if you want to venture into this venture, warm clothes and trekking boots are a must.
