Walk in the sun or the moonlight and smile at the contented faces that you will see along the way.
Above all, you do not need a car. At last, you will not have to drive during your stay on the island. If you do bring a car, just park it near your accommodation and forget about it. You will certainly agree that the whisper of the sea and the cries of seabirds are more pleasant than the sound of car horns or the groan of engines.

The inhabitants will be more than willing to help with anything you might require. Alone is only out of choice here, as everyone and everything come together to a form a harmonious whole.
You will relax, lie on the soft sand, swim in the turquoise water, forget your obligations and love desire, forget the artificial simulation of life in the cities, surrender to the embrace of the sun, dream under countless stars and a friendly smiling moon …
