View was lovely but the crowds made it a little less enthralling. It’s worth a stop if driving by though!

The Hirakubo peninsula is beautiful! Scenic point. About 20 minutes by car via R390 from the airport.

This sight offers a spectacular 270 degree costal view of over the northern part of the island. Worth stopping by when you Re close but not worth driving to from the other side of the island.
