Really beautiful beach, incredible and with the epidemic at the moment you are only in a small group so you might as well tell you that you have a lot of room. On the other hand price a little high because it's an afternoon beach at almost 110 euros at 2, food and drinks not included

Very good trip. Over-time pick-up at the hotel. Because of Corona, a fever was measured at the entrance and the seats were assigned by the tour guide. Everything is well organized. On the ship, as in the bus, there was a mask requirement, which was also checked. The island was already explained on the bus.

Fantastic island!

The trip was really great! The bus picked us up in time and the tour guides were very personable and informed us well about everything. On the way to the harbor we enjoyed the landscape and discovered one or two beautiful bays and the boat trip to the island took about 1 hour and was also super beautiful. The island is a dream but unfortunately a lot of tourists are there. My tip: don't go to the Golden Beach, everyone is heading for it. There are other beautiful bays on the island with crystal clear water! That was absolutely fantastic! We snorkeled there but there were not many fish or anything to see, but you can discover the beautiful nature on the island! The process was super organized, everything was fine, a successful trip!
