A very serene place, Nice to walk thro the streets and have some nice fresh home made ice cream and then opens out to the light house along the beach water front. Specailly after a wholesome seafood platter the much needed walk ;)

This is a great visit by boat, trip is very fun and the island offers a little bit of exploring, a nice bay to have a swim in and friendly locals. Lighthouse was shut but it didn't spoil the visit.

Enjoyed a helicopter flight operated by Skylark Helicopters over the island, see uploaded image. Watching the sunset, looking over to the lighthouse whilst standing on the beach is truly amazing.

Fully worth the boat ride to the island. Just check if the sea is calm before going. You have to get permission from the port Authority person at the site to enter and see the place.
