This walk from the peninsula in the north combines 2 walks, the black 52 and the red 51. To reach the parking lot you have to follow a narrow road along the sea. From the parking lot it goes up over a wide path flanked by oleanders. You pass a monument and after around 20 minutes, a sharp turn to the right, you will find a narrow path going up: the start of hike 52. The trail first runs through the forest and then along the mountain. Beautiful exotic plants stand along the path. After a while it becomes rocky and you have to walk close to the rocks. Then you will see a narrow passage that opens on the other side along the gorge and where chains are hanging for support. At the top a plateau has been made on which a cannon is placed. There you will continue the path up and begin walk 51. The broad path ends at a tree under which a few cairns are standing. Follow up the mountain on the left until you reach the top of the mountain at the first detour. You can go up and enjoy the view, then back to the path and continue along the mountain. You continue on the ridge and you end up at the top of the path that will take you to the entrance of the beautiful beach. The path is varied enough and will not bore you. The last part of the trail gets a bit wider and makes some weird turns until you see the parking space in front of you. Enough variety on the way and also the way back nice trails (where Rother often takes a dirt road).
