This is a very idyllic place to visit. Authentic with a lot of privacy. Choose a spot on the rocks if you want to swim or sunbathe near the water, or put your hamac in the trees.

Very nice place for a little stroll. People gather there with friends and families for a pique-nique or just go to the beach.

My French friend took me here on motor so the ride was really nice along the coast. This island can be visited within an hour. Bare in mind that it's really windy. The island also holds a big music festival in summer, Les Voix du...More
