They are carved right into the rocks. From above, you will have a breathtaking view of the coast and the sea. The island is very popular with tourists, so we recommend that you arrive there as early as possible in order to take a place for mooring.
You can swim here, but the bottom is littered with stones, so it is recommended to wear special shoes so as not to injure your feet.
