The church is amazing! Lots of steps to climb but what fab views! There is a tiny beach nearby and because the sea was rough, we had it all to ourselves! There is also a very good café where you can enjoy a coffee after...More

We wanted to go here before any bus or boat tours landed and so went early. Best to have shoes rather than flip flops as some of the 200 ish steps are steep and close together but the climb isn't that bad and the view...More
