We took a boat tour around the island which was well worth it. Our captain backed the boat right up to the arch, the colour of tne water was amazing, so clear so white, well worth the trip.

This grotto was so cool. The first one we stopped at and was able to swim outside of it. Also saw the Virgin Mary.

Having a background in the natural sciences, I find these places fascinating. The sea and water from above have carved out this auditorium; add to that the skill of the boat captain to get you in and out and you have a great experience
