Walk to the Strand and came across a stunning view. Good photo opportunity to be had. Spent two hours on the island, other than walking and taking in the views there isn’t anything else. A lovely cuppa and ice cream enjoyed too.

The ferry goes every 2 hours approx. We tried to give ourselves under 2 hours for walking the island but it was not enough and we missed the next ferry. It is €7 each return and you pay on board.
