I visited this village at the end of my son tour. There are a lot of stores and people making handcraft. It was interesting to me to see watching people carving things on a piece of wood. However the carvings are kind of expensive.

This is an interesting island. Well worth a visit if you like seeing artisans and tradesmen at work. It has it's own market and you can buy gifts there.

I think we were a bit unlucky to visit on a National Holiday so hardly any craftspeople were on site. We had to content ourselves with a quick look around a workshop and the boat building yard. Not a highlight of our tour!
