Saint Achilios is a small island in Small Prespa. One can visit the island by a wooden floating bridge. There are 11 houses on the island, a guest house with a restaurant and the  ruins of Saint Achilios church which does worth a visit. Definitely an ideal place for those who seek quiet vacation near nature.
