This place is amazing, nature and art installations will blow your mind. Bike rental is a great option. Easy ride and great views. Check the ferry times and plan well because there aren’t many. Worth a visit!

A very quiet island with many artistic and interesting art installation. Very suitable for relaxing walking or biking tour. Remember to check bus schedule so as to make good use of time and not miss important scenery.
