We wanted to visit the island at the sunset but the waiting time to board the boat was about one hour during the Eid holidays. Therefore, plan well in advance and be prepared for long waiting queue during peak seasons. I would strongly advice not to visit during night, there is nothing to enjoy as far as the sea is... More

For over 20 years the islands were visited only by a few private boats for their leisure, it has been made possible for anyone to have the experience of an exotic island get-away and yet take it easy on their leisure budget.
