  • Good boat ride, very interesting inhabitants. Can be a bit difficult walk up & down hills if you are not in a good shape & not yet adjusted to the high altitudes.
  • Beautiful, peaceful island. About 1km across, and 4 long. No cars. There are footpaths around the island, bays and simple eating places. Very like a small Greek island. Wonderful.
