Tour & walk around the island

Last minute I joined a tour on the Island. It was interesting to hear about the history of the island and to learn about protectie the birds and fauna on the island. Though, it also took a lot of time which was valuable since I only spend an afternoon on the island. Nature and the lookouts are stunning! Very friendly people :)

Great Family Destination

Great place to get away from the crowds and have some peace and tranquillity. Lovely well kept island and a short walk to very calm beaches. Perfect for families and great facilities! Would visit again.
