  • Lovely small town - it has its own unique charm. Road to get there is very diverse so be careful. Beside walking 🚶 through the streets, or eating & drinking - there's really nothing else to do. 😴

  • Picture post card of a village. Great taverna right on the waters edge over looking the harbour with the old fort up on the hill perfect photo opportunities with a cold drink in hand.
