The waves embrace the stone houses of the island and give the atmosphere a touch of romance and nostalgia. Its narrow streets, houses with colorful shutters and small harbors give you the feeling that you live in a fairytale! You can visit the Catholic temples, but they are crowded as well as the archaeological museum. In small shops, you can buy your souvenirs while it’s worth to get up early and walk by the sea. The sound of the waves and the fresh air will refresh you.
