This island impresses tourists with its wild scenery, quiet space and beautiful beaches with smooth white sand and jade-blue seawater.

On this island, a clean and beautiful beach is the place you want to be. The sparkling white sand stretching for miles in the south or the cliffs in the north are all ideal places to spend some time. Here, a leisurely swim in the clear blue water will help dispel the fatigue as well as the heat of summer days. Visitors can also swing gently on hammocks hung under the green canopy of trees and listen to the lovely symphony of the leaves and wind. This precious gift that nature offers can be found here, on this island.
