I stayed at the Kex hostel across the street and went here at sunrise (around 9:30). The view is beautiful and I got some fantastic pictures of the bay.
We walked from our hotel down to the coast area and luckily it was a pretty sunrise over the mountains. Just be very careful if the base of the sculpture is covered in snow as it is marble and so so slippy, good walking shoes made no difference.
