  • Good viewing angles from the built in observation decks while walking through the hedged walkways. Then a 10 minute drive to the waterfront for a lunchtime cruise, or just drive around Thisen island.  more »
  • It is a path that borders the sea, the bay and the mountains, with beautiful views and great places to take great photos. Must. And it has an amazing restaurant/café at the beginning.
