Great Outdoors

This beautiful peninsula is a perfect day trip, especially for families. Spend time walking or cycling around the coast and enjoy a picnic under the shade of the pine trees. There is 25 hectares of open space here to enjoy! Or, if you would like something more sedate, take the little train that goes around the peninsula for a commentated tour that ends up at the mini zoo - where you'll find seals, sea lions and penguins. Don't forget to explore the magnificent Palacio de la Magdalena, a royal palace built at the start of the 20th century, which crowns the highest point of the peninsula. Take some time to visit the 2 beaches on the peninsula - la Magdelena beach and Bikini beach, and wander around the replica galleons by the coast.
