  • It is a paradise. Wonderful. To get there you must take a ferry that is very cheap. The beaches are very nice, very crystal clear waters and white sand. The sea is very quiet, with few waves. Recommend cross island walk to go to the beach on the side of the sea, is much more beautiful. The road is nice there are many houses on the sides and some business to buy something.
