  • A complete waste of time. The island has nothing to offer as far as I can see. No history and no points of interest.  more »

  • Prepare for a half an hour hike uphill. Not easy.
  • Wonderful place. Reaching the place is difficult because of steep ramps from the lake. Senior citizens and those who are having arthritis problems should take care. They can install handrails for the convenience.
