Really amazing view, the only thing is you can't climb it due to rocks falling, it was closed to public in December 2017. You can get pretty close to it though and get really nice pictures.

Rock itself was beatiful. However the surroundings were not that impressive. Small beach with lot of seaweed and litter. Also the acces on the the rock itself was forbidden with not so aestethically pleasing fence. Maybe because it was still off season. We found similar...More

We went there in the low season, so it was most with nobody there. Nice views and color combination between the rocks and the water.

This is a really special place. The bright white cliffs are really amazing. It is easy to walk up onto the cliffs and sit and relax and enjoy the peace and watch the sea.

Hi. In November you never know . Once I visited Sicily end of November and it was lovely and hot 24℃ . Couple of years later was still around 18℃ but it was raining. I don't think it's going to be cold but might be wet .
