It is well worth hiring a small boat to explore the islands. Lots to see and great places to swim. The RIBs are 80 Euro for 2 hours.

We did a full walk around the island which is 6.5km and can take 2.5 to 3 hours. Much of the walk is easy but there are some sections that are not really suited for the casual walker and in any case you do need...More
