Continue on the coastline towards the most famous beaches in the area, and as we are getting there ahead of the crowds, we are lucky enough to enjoy the vast ocean avoiding the vast “ocean of people instead”. Through paths and trails, on top of the cliffs, we continue of adventure taking you to our secret location, which can only be reached with the help of a 4×4 jeep so off-grid that even most of the locals are unaware of.
