The island is next to the one of the largest and prettiest in Macedonia, a well-known summer destination for the locals, with no important touristic development though.The direct distance from the shore is 1.000 m.
The island has an area of 155 to 158 acres (1 acre = 1.000 sqm), as estimated from a topographic plan.
The perimeter of the coast is about 2,5 km and the highest point of elevation is 85 meters above sea level. It has an average width of 150 and average length of 500 meters.
Near the coast there are marine areas with shallow and deep water, easily accessible, with interesting and vibrant sea bed, ideal for snorkeling, and pristine areas suitable for recreational fishing. It has 3 to 4 small beaches on the east and north side where the water is shallow, and the sea depth starts from 0 feet.
There is also a small natural harbor, which is occasionally used by local fishermen.
The onshore part of the island is now minimally accessible with small and rough trails, while there are areas suitable for development, where the slope is smooth. In these areas road construction is possible at relatively low cost.
Almost the entire island’s surface is covered by vegetation, whose composition varies from location to location. The vegetation consists of bushes and trees, most of them native (wild olives) or artificially planted (fruit trees). The largest part of the island is covered by wild olives. Within this area there are scattered about 250 domesticated olive trees and 20 fruit trees (almond, fig and plum).
