The water in the bay of Ist is crystal clear, that's why we can see all the jellyfish - jellyfish in all sizes between 2 and 30 cm. As fascinating these creatures are, it is no invitation for having a swim. I had contact with a very tiny one a few days ago and my foot is still itching.


Visible from far away is the little chapel on top of Mount Straza (175m) overlooking the village of Ist. One can walk up there via a very steep path. Rainer has no problems to walk up there. The view up here is marvellous. IstBluete view
