Facing the North quadrant, we enjoy a magnificent landscape from the plain to the sea. Usually big and high flights are made, due to the thermal influence associated with the maritime breeze with the special help of the local orography. Dynamic flight is also possible.

Access is by private property along the road. It is a great place for thermal and dynamic flight. Take-off is usually done in the middle of the smaller mount, and it is advisable to take off within a good thermal cycle. Do not fly without the knowledge of the local pilots and without the authorization of the competent authorities.
