Small but nice island, stones and bedrock beaches, not as crowded as the city beaches. Must see the Matti Vestibule.

the beds and parasols are a bit expensive and the beach is pebbly, but the island and the rocks in the water are very beautiful, worth to visit once

Nice island, clear water, good and cheap ferry, terrible hospitality. Have some footwear for swimming, but much less crowded than beaches on main land.

Very good transfer forth and back to the island. Beach stuff is very rude. This fat man shouldn't work with people that bring a money to his country.
