Interesting museum related to fishing that only costs 3 euro per person. There is a cafe that is reasonably priced. There are toilet facilities, but you need to ask for the key.

Just 3€ entrance fee and, on a breezy morning, an absorbing immersion into the lives of locals up to just a generation or two ago and an insight into their hard way of life, the sea and local fish catches around the coast of the island. The storyboards are all in Spanish but folders with translations are provided and although... More
