We expected to be able to eat at any of the several restaurants available on the island but, seeing as we visited in the beginning of June, only one was open. Disappointing for such a nice place to not take better care of its tourists.

Visited here for a business conference & was very pleasantly surprised by the beauty & diversity of this place. The gardens, beach, small vineyards, pathways.. every inch of the island was a beauty. Makes for a good day trip with family or friends.
