Continuing further we reach a beautiful corner of the south Coast and enjoy our mitt day break directly by the Lybean Sea. Driving along the South Coast for a while, we suddenly turn left and get back to the mountains, to enjoy very impressive landscape very rich wild flowers vegetation, and the breath taking view of both Coasts at the highest point.
