So when the guidebook says a beach is "secluded" or "private", that means it's nude. This one was very secluded.

This is the western-most point in Europe, so it has tons of tour groups visiting.

Another treacherous path

This was not safe at all. The "public" rope that we're using was in horrible shape had been tied back together a half-dozen times. But we were so close to the bottom we couldn't turn back.

This was really unsettling. All the walls were covered with bones some monks dug up from the local cemeteries.
