The Directions

This is an easy drive that follow the main road(s) that cut through the island. If facing the , you’ll want to drive left. Follow this road around to the right, over the hill, and when you get to the T-junction turn left on the main through road. You will stay on this road for less than a minute before passing a fuel station on your right. This is probably the most reliable place to fill your tank. Continue along the road and the town quickly disappears. Within 5 minutes, buildings give way to limestone cliffs, as you enter the rugged and rural interior of the island. Follow the road until it winds to an end at a ferry terminal.
 
Return back the way you came until you get to a very obvious split in the road. This split takes you through the western corner of the island. You will reach a village after a few kilometers, and a clear split in the road. Take the left turn, so you are coming out of the village and picking up the coastal road. You will eventually drive around to which is a good place to chill.
