Hikes along the towering cliffs and lush forest provide good opportunities for beautiful views and plenty of relaxation. You'll definitely be a minority here, with all those furry friends outnumbering you. However, it is important to say about this place that it was extremely affected by the strong fires. The island was hardly what it used to be in the early 2020s. Strong winds drove the fire onto the island, where it raged tremendously, causing many of the animals to lose their lives. To help the local people and animal organizations, you should still visit this unique place, because tourism plays a big role in the reconstruction of the island!
