Driving along the coastal dirt road you will reach the starting point of a short 15 min trek that will lead you to the breathtaking view point towards the Balos lagoon.

There, you will unwind and will have plenty of time to enjoy the beach on the sand or in one of the café-bars on the beach (a great spot also to get a snack and drinks!)
