It's a road. It runs along the side of the ocean. Some of the scenery is interesting. But great? No.

We had a delightful few days driving this magnificent stretch of coastline. The views are wonderful-blue sea and sky and amazing limestone formations. There are lots of little places to see and stop at too. Famous and justly so.
