Few years ago I was here with my family for vacation.It was lovely,places to see is definitely Navagio Beach with the pirate ship and if you come at right time,you can even see turtles on the other side of island. We were there in mid-september and the weather was changing quickly,so I recommend to go here only during July,August ;)
