Another world, sitting just off the Syrian coast at Tartus. The island is totally built up; a small but busy harbour with people coming and going from the mainland, narrow alleyways, clustered houses, a traditional timber-boat yard, and a small well-preserved Crusader fort in the middle on high ground. And the ferry ride out is great too.

One of the most peaceful islands, historical oriental, beautiful, you can enjoy a day or two or few hours neither.
