During the first two weeks of February each year, the entire island comes together for a unique celebration of their culture, involving music, dance and traditional sports.  Fortunately the festival has always been organised by the locals for the locals, and not merely become a commercial show put on for tourists.  Nevertheless, visitors are strongly encouraged to attend, and even participate, and if you can arrange your stay to coincide with the festival, it’s certainly an un-missable experience.
