Beautiful

Took the family and we loved it. Beautiful walks, views and bays. Lovely chilling with lunch and a glass of wine at the cafe with tables and beanbags by the beach. They also went out of their way to cater for our coeliac (gluten free) needs. Recommended.

Not a bad day out

If you would like a chill day out out then this is the one for you. You get dropped off on an island and picked up two hours later. Thought it was going to be more by way it was advertised. The cafe was expensive but very nice.

Just a ferry
