  • We spent three wonderful days on the island. It's great because it took alternating bike rides and hikes. This island remained very wild. It's great!

  • Beautiful wild island. Nice walks to do on foot and by bike. Made of beautiful photos.

  • A place out of time to discover bike (and no need to lock...) where there really seems to be in the middle of nowhere.
