To ensure a safe visit to the rock field, we highly recommend that visitors come prepared with appropriate footwear such as sneakers or slip-resistant shoes. Additionally, it is advisable to wear neat clothing and exercise caution when encountering sharp rocks along the narrow and winding path.

Visitors have the opportunity to enjoy summer bathing in rock pools. However, it is advisable to consult with local residents regarding the specific pools that are safe for swimming, as certain ones may have depths ranging from six to seven meters.
