Para-sailing, BMX bikes, radio-controlled cars are all advertised as featuring and the facilities are all there, complete with a small stadium for the BMX bikes ; however, the two times we visited we only saw the para-sailing because organization appeared to be very poor, with...More

Paragliding is from South entry. You can drive up to the top where paragliding group are gathered. The view was beautiful and paragliding seems fun. Many people were there in the morning around 9am and they can fly by themselves within few hours. Very cool.

Facilities are a bit limited, but the festival ran well. Many other trips, too, for various reasons. Beautiful!

The park has excellent views of the sea and mountains. Parking is available at several points. Stick to the paths on the western side if you don't want a hard hike through the thickets! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHCNqiLgB1s&feature=plcp&context=C4c3a2a3VDvjVQa1PpcFMVX_6EUjgOkio6x90ApYsgkJI21-LUEio%3D
