  • Island is an amazing place, has lots of vegetation and has rocky beaches with sand up to, is also the old battery of cannons as part of history, the parador is expensive and if travelling in high season you can not enjoy the silence because they put in the parador very loud music and the Bay is filled with boats and yachts with many people, the best to go time is in November until 20 December throughout February. The good news is that there are bathrooms and wastebaskets around the island, would be great people more aware and take more care of the place not throwing waste in inappropriate places.

  • A must at least once every now and, in the summer visit. You can tour the island in a couple of hours. Deep and beautiful beaches. Take extra precautions, and more if they have children in their charge. Many people! Beware of the Sun is essential, if they want to avoid a fever when he returned, and I say this from experience. Bring cooler with drinks.
