The island has a bohemian kind of character that’s ideal for wandering through narrow alleyways and bougainvillea-strewn courtyards, almost like taking a walk through another time without the traffic noise. Historic windmills spin in the salty sea breeze while goats are often seen scurrying across the hills.

Authentic dining experiences include local delicacies like goat cheese, homemade matsata and the signature beverage of this region, rakomelo.
