It has one of the best views that I've ever seen...let alone stayed at! It was pure heaven having a sun downer enjoying the sun setting in front of us. Honestly you never get bored of this place. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was a week of relaxation mixed with a few fun activities like Sporaded SUP and epic walks around the island. If you're looking for the best place to stay on the island...look no further as this is it!

They will help with car hire, boat trips etc. A very friendly island with plenty of places to eat. The old town at night is quite magical too.
