Although I got sun poisoning on this trip and I was hung over this was a great place to relax and swim!

We took a motor boat ride, a short 10 minutes from Club Med, and landed on a nice sandy beach which was fairly crowded and uninviting. However, once you cross between the restaurants to the other side, you will find simple, wonderful, inexpensive, fresh out of the water seafood and great Snorkeling. I highly recommend this wonderful little escape, you... More

Loved the beach and the surrounding areas. Very good food as well! A must visit. The snorkelling isn't incredible but it is still pretty fun, calm clear waters.

The island is great, such soft sand, and fantastic snorkeling, but so much cheaper to travel their on your own rather than pay for the excursion because your food option for lunch is lacking.

We watched our 2 girls (9 and 11) experience the dolphins. What an amazing adventure for them. Definitely do the 45 minute experience. The instructor was awesome. My one daughter always volunteered to go first so she wasn't really sure what she was doing so the instructor would jump in the water and help her. These dolphins are absolutely amazing!
