You can find this just a short distance from the city. The scenery is awesome and it is a very nice place to take a leisurely stroll or even hike.

The amazing place to walk along some of the most spectacular sights of the Mediterranean See. It is a relatively easy hike trail with spectacular views, great landscape and a genuine smell, sound and feeling of the seaside nature.
