  • Such a beautiful place!!! Perfect for a day at the beach (mostly rocky) in complete relax.
  • Bring your own food and beverage, because the restaurants on this island are total tourist traps! Start by either going uphill from the ferry to the trail leading up and around to the beach, or cross the isthmus and walk along the sandy soil to explore worn volcanic rock water access. Beware of sharp rocks at the water's edge and bring sturdy-soled shoes that can protect your feet and be fine getting wet. It cannot be overstated: BRING YOUR OWN FOOD AND WATER. a 1.5 litre bottle of water was 3 euros and the paella restaurant is a bait and switch; the actual meals look nothing like the photos outside!
