Highs & Lows

Skim boarding on the beach in the summer heat was incredible.

The horseflies and midges were very annoying as it got towards dusk time on the island.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I think if I could go back I would have definitely tried to do a bit more of the activities or I would have done a bit more walking on the island as I feel like I didn’t do as much as I should have done.

  • Packing tips?

    The only thing I would recommend to pack is insect repellent because if you go out during the dusk hours you will definitely need it.

  • Transportation Tips?

    The island is very easy to get around on. There’s a coastal road that loops around the entire island and it only takes about an hour to do the full circuit in a car. I would recommend if the weather is good enough that you cycle as much as possible.
