Great for a hiking and boat trip in one. The island itself is very nice with two very warm water beaches. There are a few good hikes to the salt pond, abandon nunnery and lighthouse. At the light house you will get the best views...More

Assuming the opportunity (your really need a private charter or your own boat) a visit to the island is definitely worth your time - there something to be said about these abandoned constructions and relics. Sometimes spoiled by partiers but definitely worth your time !
