The park has some fantastic motorbike roads that i enjoyed riding across the beautiful landscape and the thrilling speed was awesome.
The views from the peak were stunning and we we loved the beautiful landscape and the sea could be seen clearly from the peak also the beaches and the cool breeze was refreshing.
Hiking with my family was fun and the walking trail was great with signs that were helpful. The weather is favourable for the activity and it is enjoyable.
We loved the tour around the park and enjoyed the wild and the untammed nature that surrounds the park. Magical moments.
The botanical garden offeres the perfect place for a picnic and we loved the diverse species and the fresh air with beutiful flowers and flora.
We went rock climbing on the hilly region of the park and the experience was unmatched with refreshing time and engaging activity. We had the correct gear for the activity and every sweat was worth it.
