This is a little gem and absolutely fascinating. Tomatoes are so important to the island and the history is just amazing. And you'd be surprised how much came from the UK (well not the tomatoes..)

Worth the ride & visit. For little you get to appreciate how tomato made this area tick. Team very keen to bring it to life. Nice chilled beach with a few genuine restaurants. Enjoyed it.
