We love to spend time in the beach around sunset moment. The sky is extremely colorful and beautiful. Seeing such scenery while having a picnic is the best.

This is one of my favorite places to spend time in the summer. Accessible by a local ferry, the island has a relaxed vibe and countless ruins and old bunkers to explore. Be sure to bring climbing shoes and a swimsuit!
