The island provides an idyllic place to unwind thanks the natural beaches that line the shore. Life on the island moves at a much slower pace than in some of the bigger cities, so be sure to indulge in long walks on the beach, a bike ride on the marsh or simply watch the sunset in the evenings

It is not all about the slow way of life however, when the wind picks up, locals and tourists alike head to the shore and don their colorful kiteboarding gear. It is incredible to see just how quickly these surfers can travel and change directions, and in the perfect conditions, these darting figures on the waves are a true spectacle.
