It is really nice, well maintained garden just about the coast. Plenty of trees to give you a shade and breeze from the sea to cool. Highly reccommended.

It is about 15 km far (about 20 minutes by car) from your hotel. You can look at google.maps to see the routes. In summer, it is opened daily from 8:00 till 20:00.
