    With a population of about 500 and very few tourist amenities or roads the island is getting more tourists each year, people looking to experience something more than a cosmopolitan well known island. With very little water or land suitable for cultivation it's more of a huge rock than an island.

    The history is not well known, but there is evidence the island was inhabited in the 2nd Millennium BC, probably under Minoan, Cretan rule.

    This town is perched on the edge of a 200-metre high cliff on this 32 square Km island.
