You have to walk up many stairs to get to the top but it's worth it. Com ehere in teh evening to watch the sunset as many people come here to start the exciting trip by the Tiroleza down to the beach.

A lovely island with no traffic allowed, full of restaurants, bars and many beautiful beaches. The posadas(hostels) are nice and clean. Papagallo Posada was very good, basic but veyr clean with delicious breakfast included in the price. Cocktails by the beach, samba, beach volleyball and football as well as great boat excursions.

Lovely view. Very peaceful. When you go all the way up to go to the Farol but then you take your the left instead, the view is also stunning.
