Our favourite accommodation, quiet places, cheap, clean, amazing landscapes! Rangers are so friendly! And always toilet paper in restrooms! Sometimes we had hot showers for 50cents, it is good to ask donations and sometimes it is free!

Small island, with few people but a lot of sheep and a lot of trails who make you discover all the island. Really nice lookout, beaches and walks!
