Not a lot ot see but an interesting way to spend half an hour as part of an island coach trip. You can light a candle in the church for your loved ones and the history of the place is quite interesting too

It was too quiet and only one street to go to on a night not enough..I like to have my meal then visit a few bars for a drink after i found most were restaurants and didnt feel comfortable going into one of these just to have a drink when people were eating on the next table..
