We did visit the island as part of a day cruise. The island has a great potential of becoming a top tourists attractions just shame the beach is badly maintained and not clean.

The Catholic church is undergoing rennovation but when you walk around it towards the sea you are greeted with fantastic undistrubed views in all directions.

Sea can be very rough, go for a catamaran instead. There are no towels available at the island, bring your own. Overall very nice, good snorkelling. No bathroom facilities available

Took a Catamaran and try to check the weather in advance. The sea can be rough. After a 1,5 hour journey you get to the Plat Island. Paradise. Excellent day program. Very good option
