  • Great observation deck is on the 4-m from the first places of the island. Brought back wonderful tourist bus driver on the Islands, which departs daily from the parking lot (including taxis) or 14, or in the 3:00 pm. Duration of the trip 2:00, cost 8 euros.

  • We visited this with our Tuk Tuk guide, great photo point showing magnificent views of this Island. The Tuk Tuk tour is a must and Andrea our guide was superb, far better than viewing by taxi.  more »
  • Those who visit this island has to climb to the Peak of the Castle and enjoy the magnificent landscape. Is one of the sights of interest of the island.
