Visited the island on the Aqua Mania Santino Cruise with Captain Roy. We loved snorkeling here and walking on the beautiful unspoiled beach. It's definitely a place worth visiting if you love nature and beautiful beaches.

Took the Scoobi Too tour out here, (highly recommend them) and was not disappointed. We went snorkeling here and saw two sea turtles up close also a variety of fish. The ocean bottom was pretty clean, so not much else to see but it was worth it.. There is also a mud bath on the island but we ran out... More

Arrived on a daytime catamaran cruise on one of the Golden Eagle vessels. Snorkelling is possible but most of our boatload just sat on the beach. A group of young French teenagers had gone to the mud baths and coated themselves .

Most island snorkling tours visit this location - plenty of fish to see...can get crowded in the water - but everyone seems to view fish as the under water rocks protects and attracts fish...need a boat to get there...

This uninhabited island is great for a picnic or relaxing quiet beach day. Their are several moorings that boats can tie off on. Otherwise several different tour companies make trips to the island. My wife is new to snorkeling so it was a great quiet place to test her ability. We were greeted by 3 turtles upon entering the water.... More

Another one of my fav places on St Martin,the beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is the best.You will need to charter a boat to get there but once you are there ,it will be worth your time.

Great place to boat around and visit for a snorkeling trip! Uninhabited, requires boat hire or arranged trip to visit.
