Our mistake was to only stay 3 days. I think a week would be much better as we had more walks and more restaurants to experience. The couple who run the hotel were very helpful and lent us a book about the island and interesting walks. It was good to have a washing machine after a couple of weeks travelling around Turkey. It's only 30 minutes from Turkey but very much Greek. The bakery sells wonderful breads and Kastellorizo specialties. Go on a little low boat to get to the Blue Cave so that you can go inside. St George Church is currently being repaired and if you knock on the door the workers will let you in. It's worth seeing.
