This is an interesting island. Well worth a visit if you like seeing artisans and tradesmen at work. It has it's own market and you can buy gifts there.

Nice break away form the town, can only be reached by boat. We had lunch on the boat and then stopped to look at the small market in the village. Very talented carpenters.
