The area is 262 hectare and enormous! Pasture land continues on and on and about 350 cows and beef cattle that are kept from some ten farmers both from and outside of the town, spend time freely. Some of them eat grasses, some of them just lay down.

There is a promenade around the fence, so let’s walk around. The beautiful landscape with cows, greens, and the ocean continues, which is very relaxing! You can enjoy the beautiful view no matter where you are in the farm, but do not forget to climb the octagon-shaped observation tower that looks like a silo! There is a spiral staircase to the top.
