Firstly check tide times before you travel. You reach the island via a causeway that floods at high tide. When we visited we arrived at the island at 10.30 or so and the place was packed with tourists and coach parties. The tide came in at 13.45 but by then a fair few of the tourists had left. This is good in that it is like strolling around a quiet country village, you feel like you have the place to yourself. The drawback is that the pubs and restaurants all shut at 14.00 until 18.00. Madness at peak holiday season but quaint in its own way.
The Castle is a must see but note it shuts at 15.00.
All in all lovely place. If the weather is good take a picnic and spend the day. If not you might want to plan things so that you see what you want before high tide.
