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.

was cool to see the turtles and stingrays, but water was fairly deep as compared to Akumel in Mexico where they are much larger and only in about 10 feet of water. Still worth it if it is part of your boat trip around the island.

We rode the Tiki Tiki boat tour and spent the day at the island. We saw several fish and one sea turtle, the snorkeling was great for beginners. I recommend you carry an umbrella if you choose to explore the island. We got pretty hot from the sun exploring the old air strip. It was worth the hot sweaty walk.... More

I love stopping here on a boat trip. It is beautiful and I wish it was easier to get to this beach. Great snorkeling.
