Weitere Tipps für den schlechten Reisenden

Du musst es raust. Keine frische Wasserquelle sowie ein grundlegendes Badezimmer sowie die Toilette.

Bringen Sie sowohl Lebensmittel als auch Wasser mit. Auf der Insel werden keine Mahlzeiten angeboten.

Hinterlasse nichts, aber Fußabdrücke. Nimm deinen Müll mit. Wenn Sie können, holen Sie sich andere Müll, die andere Touristen auf der Insel hinterlassen haben, und entsorgen Sie sie ordnungsgemäß, wenn Sie auf das Festland zurückkehren.

Erwarten Sie starke Wellen sowie felsige Küste.

Geh früh dorthin. Für Camper, insbesondere an Wochenenden und Hochsaison, ist es viel besser, frühzeitig dort zu sein, sodass Sie ein viel besseres Gebiet entdecken können, um Ihre Zelte festzulegen. Für diejenigen, die eine Tagesausreise unternehmen, werden die Bootsfahrer nachdrücklich beraten und fest darauf bestehen, dass Sie später als 14 Uhr abreisen. In unserem Fall wollten die Bootsfahrer die Insel mit 12nn verlassen, wir haben uns jedoch bis 13 Uhr verlängert. Wir haben mit Verhandlungen für eine weitere Erweiterung versucht, aber sie sind äußerst hartnäckig, um die Insel zu verlassen. Ihr Grund: starke Wellen.

Wenn Sie Ihr Auto mitbringen, können Sie den Parkplatz für den Parkplatz arrangieren und sichern, wenn Sie sich mit der Person in Verbindung setzen
