The awards and recommendations show no sign of abating. Lonely Planet number 5, Conde Nast number 8, Vecernji List number 1. And now an accolade for a recent tourist to the island, who won a 7-day holiday in Mexico on the back of her superb account of a chance encounter with a naked octopus fisherwoman in an isolated cove.
