Two days on the islands was not nearly enough. Everywhere you look you will see a beautiful beach, or some interesting rocks sculpted by the wind. Even if you only visit the two islands you can drive to, you will see some wonderful sights. And...More

Ferry over to the island and cruised the beautiful panoramic road to get our bearings. Settled on a beautiful cove which was down a long thin track after a thin road, parking is anarchy but we'll worth it. Swimming and snorkeling heaven
