Arrivals and departures were on the local fishing boats, and even then hold-ups of several days were regular. Back to the hammock and a world of dreams; The boat comes another day . Subsequently, as its name for elegant nature, extraordinary marinelife and staggering landscapes grew, simple access was made available when improved and safer boats were brought in to cope with the number of back-packers, being engrossed to the island.
