We went to Sunday Mass with a group of 25-30 teenagers and parents while on Spring Break. The church is beautiful, Mass was very nice, and the locals were exceptionally friendly.

This is an old Island church. Great example on the architecture. Not a ton to do or see here but other things are in the area and it is free to visit
