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

Finally got here via the Coconut Reef tour. Nice little island, found a turtle to watch within minutes. No amenities, but a sweet little island. Still missed the " mud bath" feature we've heard about, but enjoyed the island.

Visit this website for the best tour to Tintamarre Island and mud bath. It was the highlight of our trip, from 8:30am - 6:00pm catamaran tour with the best food of our entire stay! It was awesome!

If you like to snorkel and want to see turtles, a trip to Tintamarre is a must for visitors and locals alike. We went there recently on Fun Seeker, out of Anse Marcel and we enjoyed every moment.

Awesome island! Saw turtles and sting rays, and lots of cool looking fish! One of the stops on our snorkelling tour (aka the best day of our honeymoon!)

We saw plants of turtles off the island. The water was calm and the amount of time we spent there, it was perfect. I didn't swim to the island but my hubby did, said it was further than he thought!

we went on a snorkeling tour where we got to swim with the sea turtles that live just off the beach which was great. There is nothing on the island so if your looking for a great place to boat over to for some privacy or peace and quiet and sit on the beach this is your place

Went on a snorkeling tour to the Island. Despite being heavily advertised and a Turtle breeding ground - No one saw a turtle.

Loved the opportunity to introduce a friend to her first snorkle experience and have her come up close and personal with a sea turtle! Beautiful place to snorkel.
