  • Like being in an aquarium swims. Crystal clear, warm water full of beautiful fish. Watershoes recommended rocks, but what beautiful!

  • Hot water and a natural pool easy and pleasant to swim freely. The island is small, you may want to book passage. €8 per person. 10 minute journey worthwhile. You might want to bring water and something to eat

  • Beautiful island. Take your swimming stuff with it, that we had not done. Also snorkelling gear, because there are very beautiful fish. A beautiful experience!

  • We loved this island!!! Wait in line early (we got there at 8:30am & the ticket booth opens at 9:45am) if you want shade, the only spot is beside the lifeguard station. Must get there early to get a spot! Bring snorkel gear - so many beautiful fish to see!! Water shoes help because its very slippery..
  • very cool island just to have a relaxed swim in the ocean and chill around in the sun. it is incredibly beautiful and worth to spend here a couple of hours. it is very small though so if you don't plan on swimming or snorkeling theres not much to do. there is a boat going from the marina every rounded hour until 6 pm.
  • Really safe place to swim with life guards lots of fish to see. It's a volcanic island and you swim in the crater so automatically awesome
  • Lovely, but get to the ticket both by 9am at the latest on busy days as tickets are limited and the queues long.
  • Summary: Cool island, swimming, quick boat trip, not much place to lie down. NOTE: The Ferry only carries passengers from June - October. Fun little island. 10 minute boat trip to get there (from the Marina, 6€ per ticket) -Protip: Buy a 1€ bottle of water at the ticket stand. You can take a swim, lie down, whatever you want. There are mostly rocks to lie down, this doesn't make chilling very easy. Most of the island is prohibited :'(
