Verified reviewvery good

We discovered Mazeppa Bay completely by accident and were so glad we did. The beach was sooo pretty and we even took a little canoe ride (courtesy of the locals) across to the island. It was very quiet, we hardly saw another soul. We just loved enjoying the beautiful views in peace.
