WHAT TO WEAR

The weather varies this time year but it is normally t-shirt  weather or light sweater and trousers during the day. At night, due to the sea air, there can be a cooler breeze. We recommend layers of clothes to transition from day to evening. Perhaps also one big sweater, in case, you never know with the current world weather patterns!

The island port is casual for the most part and you will want to bring yoga clothes for the workshop.  Most importantly bring good shoes for walking in uneven terrain-It's not a high heel place! Rubber soles and comfort should be your go to, and bring rubber plastic shoes if you are not used to walking on small pebbled beaches.
