We couldn’t know how to find the connection the smaller roads to stay on the coast and view the sights. There were many historic points and we wouldn’t have known a thing about them without this self tour. So easy. Stop and pause as you wish. It took us longer than expected to do the whole tour, we thought it’d be shorter. Many beautiful sights and gem locations for wonderful photos."
