“A great little stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

My GF and I took a ferry to Protectin Island cause we knew there was pub and thought that it had hiking.
Needless to say we stayed for a whole day, great pub friendly locals. Though not much for actual parks or beaches...It has a pub!

“A great walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

A lovely place to walk around, lots of nature and beaches. The Dinghy Dock pub is also located on the island and well worth the visit. Just a ten minute hop on the little ferry boat provided and you feel like you are in paradise.
