  • There are no Islands as well! The water takes a thousand shades of green. I traveled a lot but for me is unique in the world!

  • Awesome place
  • After more than 20 years after the first visit, I came back to this paradise finding it still stupendo😄! In particular I saw in the late afternoon, many wild goats coming down towards the shore. making of incredible jumps, being hit, when I saw them drinking sea water! Have adapted to survive the lingering drought!
