It is an absolutely beautiful little town and one of the best old villages we visited. Lovely to stroll around and lots of interesting little ships to visit and a wide variety of restaurants available. Definitely a must visit.

Cute little old town by the sea. We visited it after main season so it was not very crowded but locals told us that summer could get crazy. Beautiful rocky view on the sea.
