The restriction of traffic to only horse-drawn carriages and bicycles further embellishes the island’s timeless charm, with commanding mansion houses lining the waterfront. During the summer months the port of Dapia buzzes with lively bars and restaurants while the old port offers a traditional fishing village feel with lovely fresh fish tavernas. The pine-clad beaches offer something really special too!
