  • Beautiful, quiet, inviting, in love, especially in the spring-summer seasons. Also attractive for visiting the island and walking around

  • worth at least a visit, the islet is well connected with the ferries. Beware of private ferrymen are rude and do everything to get you going with them by making you believe that nn there is way to go back to lunch. The public ferry takes a break from noon to 3p so if you want to stay on the islet to eat there otherwise it's going to turn the island even less.
