Take the early boat out and enjoy a great lunch after relaxing on the beach. The views and surroundings are absolutely gorgeous. Just be aware that the accessible area is quite limited.

Lovely island with amazing interesting history, unfortunately closed off for walks because most of it it's now a NATO base..

One of the highlights that you should not miss. The marine life is rich, the mussels farms are interesting and the cruise is serene.

It's €16 per person to visit the island which consists of two restaurants and a couple of beach bars. The food is good but not cheap but the scenery is amazing! You can't climb the rock without a guide due to its protective laws but...More
