Summer is the busiest time on the island.
Hollyhocks and roses in bloom adorn the old houses. Sun is high in the sky and the glitter of the sea makes the archipelago shine. It's festival time, and cities and harbours are buzzing with people and music.
Galleries, farm shops and flea markets are open, and everywhere you'll meet cyclists who challenge the island at a comfortable pace. The marinas are filled with yachts lying side by side in the still water.
