What a wonderful place. It’s got pretty much everything you could ask for. Ferry trip over, harbour with boats, little shops, pretty houses, cobbled streets, a castle with stunning views and great restaurants for food. A must see if you are close!

We were astounded by this island. The nice old buildings all around us all the time, the restaurants, walking paths and the fortress. Will come back.

A short ferry (< 2minutes) ride gets you there. Shops, views, and a fortress! Be sure you visit the fortress. Which we had more time to just sit and people watch.
