Monks Island - Review

A scenic place similar to its neighbour- the Island of Arz, the Monks Island is one of the favourite tourist destinations. If you were to look from a plane or a helicopter, you would see that it is in the shape of a cross. And people started calling it the Monks Island because in the medieval period it was developed and taken care of by the monks of the Redon Abbey. Highlights include:

  • Stone structures that will take you back to the Neolithic times.
  • Poetically named  woods- ‘Wood of Regret’, ‘Wood of sighs’, ‘Wpood of Love’, etc.
  • With a dimension of 7 x 5 kms, you are always in close proximity of the sea water.
  • Variety of shops and restaurants.
