“Looking out for flying dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Taking a boat trip on the lagune just before sunset gave a fantastic experience of seeting the herons and cormorants returning to their night rests. Just before dark hundreds of fruit eating bats travel across the lagune, an incredibel sensation in the twilight! The little restaurant at the landing offers large cold beers!
