You need to have transport and drive the length of the island to appreciate it. Go away from the tourist areas, go up in the hills....the natural areas are lovely, the forests, flowers and real beauty is up in the hills.....
top of the island......down to the sea.....on the other side!!!!
away from the commercialised areas.

I agree with SUMACO ... My Gran went with a friend three/ four years ago and they went up in the hills on coach trips, because there aren't any beaches on the island (well, bar one small one!) many sun - seekers crowd the man made sun terraces on the coast, but the best way to see the island is defiently in the mountains where much goes on.
