This lovely islet was the site of a massacre of 850 women and children by the Turks in 1824.

They were hidden there. However, as the Turks were camping on the beaches, a horse found the shallow water path 0.5-0.8 m thick on the island. The Turks, following the horse, discovered the women and children and killed them. For this reason, a memory plate is installed at the highest point of the island. How to get there?
