    A little bit of peace and quiet along the promenade. Go early, grab a bench; keep an eye out for dolphins.

    If you manage to watch the sun set over the sea from here, it will stay with you for life.

    Every summer a free festival called Castell Rock is held at the castle. Well worth coming to see.
