This Park combines beautiful nature trails, historical ruins, amazing desolate beaches and guided tours. The nature park is home to winding trails, three beaches and a excellent snorkeling on the island. The only disadvantage is that it is not accessible by public transportation or within walking distance to the hotels. You have to book a tour through an operator but believe us it is worth the trip! « less
