Too many people but then what can you expect from a World Heritage Site. Reminded me of Dubrovnik a few years ago because there were too many visitors.

I could not believe how far out the water went allowing groups of tourists and horseriders the opportunity to see the month from unique viewpoints. If only I had the courage. Maybe.

The walk across the bridge to the mount is lovely with great views either side. It takes about 30 minutes rather than getting the bus but there was a huge queue for the bus anyway.

The views are amazing. If possible, on the low tide, go for a walk on the Bay. But, take care and don't go without a GUIDE, could be very dangerous.
