  • It's great beach. You can park in the casino. The day we visited was raining and it was full of surfers.  more »
  • Put on your walking shoes and take the challenge of going up all the stairs in one haul. Do not forget to bring your camera for the end. Lots of day tourists never make it up to the top for the views.  more »
