A small zoo located 10 minutes from the centre of the island. A very nice zoo with lots of birds and plants. Swans, parrots, pideys, peacock etc. And some even roam free! Very nice for a hour or two! Must visit!

A lovely small Zoo, very well managed. Little coffee shop where you can sit and admire the birds. Watch out for Wil he will pick the button off your shirt or anything else he can get to with his beak!! Well worth 3 euros
