If you really want to relax, sit there for a couple of hours at sun rise or sun set. Try to avoid times of holidays so it is not crowded if you can.

A good place to be at the sunset. You can enjoy the view at the seaside with glass of fresh juice. Admission is free. To reach there you need to rent a ride
