    Возможность порыбачить я бы не упустил. Тем более что за рыба люциан, я ещё не знаю(хотя рыбак с большим стажем). Да и с дельфинами поплавать не отказался бы.

    Остров и правда удивительный, можно сказать три в одном, отдохнуть в дали от континента, поплавать в чистейшей воде, и конечно же для меня самое главное рыбалка, да еще и на экзотических рыб – super.
