I've been there this morning. Absolutely magnificent and a unique experience, even for children. The Cliff is whithe and you can walk on it. In my opinion it is comparable to the Giant's Causeway in Ireland!! Go there!

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 .
