Every country road, bicycle trail or boat cruise leads to a photo opportunity - whether it's a bright red barn, a white wooden church steeple, a spreading coastal farm, towering dunes, singing white sand beaches, green and white blossoming potato fields or red and white lighthouses - the guardians of the night. It’s all here on this beautiful island.
