Great - bring a beer

Visited this island as part of a sailing trip and wasn't disappointed. Great place to swim (careful of urchins) and snorkel and you can chill on the beach with a beer for hours.

Nice little island off of Paradise Beach. We took a water taxi from Hardwood Bar for $80EC round trip. We spent about 2 hours here snorkeling and just enjoying the sun. Great afternoon liming here!

Tiny half moon shape island two minutes boat ride from shore for about 40 EC round trip per person. There is a small beach, not much sand, mainly good for snorkeling through some past hurricane may have damaged the reef. The water can be rough with not perfect weather. I am happy to have done it once, I would not... More

Small island but it has been spoilt by the hurricane, went several years ago and spent half a day there, beautiful pink sand but now there is nothing much left and it has shrunk in size, what a shame

Within easy reach, but gives the impression of being solitary. Plentiful Mooring balls, so there's no need to anchor, which unfortunately, some boats do.

Just a beautiful little spot that is almost pristine, which I was lucky enough to visit and enjoy a fish BBQ with some friends in April. Very priviledged to be taken there by my friends and enjoy a little celebration and fresh fish and a beer. A little bit of heaven. Bring your snorkel and factor 50+ sunscreen, but keep... More

Some of our group were "abandoned" here by Deefer Diving while others went diving. You do need to bring all your own stuff here as there is no facilities, what you would expect on a desert island really! It was quite windy when we were there, so the current was quite strong. Snorkelling off the northern tip was very good,... More

This beach has a nice expanse of white sand. It is a nice walk for a bit of exploration. It is not a good idea to swim around to the back side of the beach where the current is very strong, but the swimming in the cove at the good side of the beach is fabulous. Accessible by boat, Sandy... More

We spent a couple of hours moored here and snorkeled all along the northeast side of the island. There were a lot of large schooling fish and hard corals. There was a slight current but we were able to swim against it initially then float back to the boat effortlessly.
