A multicultural island with cosmopolitan resorts, picturesque villages in the mountainous areas, romantic serenades and unspoilt sandy beaches.
The island where the rare species of the Caretta-Caretta turtle and Monahus-Monahus seal have chosen to live and reproduce. The area proud of its magical Blue Caves and the Shipwreck (Navagio) which is unique all over the world, will just take your breath away. There is no doubt about it.
Old streets, arched buildings, quaint bell towers and historical churches, the cosmopolitan town with its charming squares, the historical Strani’s Hill and Bohali's Venetian Castle, are just some of the reasons why millions of tourists have visited the island.
