As well as olive oil and grapes, this lush island also offers visitors a bounty in currants and citrus fruit; and of course in rocky mountain views, epic looking cliffs and quiet, warm beachy-bays. The rocky landscape is quite famous, the island has all kinds of natural rock bridges and unusual craggy features. Off shore are some further rocky and interesting sights, including the Blue Caves and the rocks that wrecked the wrecks in Shipwreck Bay. A couple of the wrecks can been seen from above the waterline in a small observation deck nearby to a monastery.
