It is a beautiful island and one you can circle under an hour. The lodging is limited to boarding houses or Airbnb type of accommodation. Not a whole lot of restaurants around, scooter rental is relatively easy.

It's a beautiful island, rent a scooter to take in all the sights, make sure you put on plenty of sun screen. Beaches are rocky. There's a small strip of street with restaurants and shops, but without the usual fist-pumping music and hordes of bars...More
