    Favorite thing: Take the boat out from here and visit the beautiful sand island. You can camp here and feel that you are in heaven. Check times in the harbor and then buy lost of food with you. I wish that everyone could go to this island, but dont throw garbage everywhere. Keep it nice for other people. This is HEAVEN!
