The history of this destination makes it a great destination and the fact that it is uninhabited means you just might get the entire island to yourself. It was the location where Roman Emperor Julius Caesar was held hostage by pirates during his youth.
It took a year for a ransom to be paid and in an act of revenge when he became a general; Caesar had the entire population of the island crucified. It remains uninhabited to this day and is a historic location to enjoy some peace and quiet.
