Definately a must do holiday location, beautiful and unspoilt. Great watersports. Excellent fishing. Nice walking paths for morning walks when the tide is high.The people are wonderful there, dining out, theres a large selection to choose from. We just keep going back the kids who are now young adults refuse to go anywhere else.
Best place in the universe. There are so many things to do and see. The atmosphere is relaxed and the people are friendly. The restaurants offer delicious cuisine and amazing views. The accommodation is expensive in peak seasons and so are the transport fees to and from the island. But it's all worth it!!!
