As well as being home to glorious works of art, such a huge painting of St. Michael, and wooden statue of San Rocco, the interior is worth the entry price alone.

The Chapelle Saint-Pierre

It curves around the bay for around a kilometre, bookended by the antiquated splendour of the old town, and low, wooded hills. This wonderful beach is easily accessible from all points on the island and is populated by friendly locals soaking up the sunshine. As if to complete this stunning tableau, towering cliffs act as a backdrop to this ideal shoreline attraction, giving it an otherworld beauty that is a must-see for any cruiser.
