There is only one way to the island: you go there by boat. Boats you can find on the harbor place (I have yet to find out the right name).
If you are not going there by group, you have to wait until the boat is full.
There are two ways to the landing place on the island. On the way around the left side you have a good view on the Trajans Kiosk, on the way around the right side you see the main temple from the side.
Both views are nice - but the Trajans Kiosk is the more well known.
