The castle is closed for causeway renovation.... unknown completion date. It might be possible to get there by crossing the beach at low tide.

I was there in April and yes it was closed. Even more annoying, they also closed the promenade so you could not walk out to get the view of the city. We ended up going to Castillo de Santa Katarina, very close, which was... More
