Although very crowded on weekends, one can go to this Island in weekdays and enjoy some peace of mind and the clear water. Take everything indeed with you as some reviewers mentioned before me. Worth the journey.

It is fun getaway to rent a boat with friends or family and make a day trip to Kobar. It is not too far and the water is nicer, cleaner and some fish can be seen. The island itself is just a tiny sand pit, so not much to see there but it is definitely great to do something different... More

The island is very small and has absolutely nothing. You can only reach this island if you have a private boat or join a group tour. It's peaceful, and the water is CLEAN.

It is only worth going there if you have your own boat. The island is small and empty. Please dont shoot down any bird they are mostly migratory and breed on the island. Also please dont anchor on the reef. There is already serious damage done due to achors and nets. Conserve the biodiversity there.

Kobar Island is one of those places only attainable by boat and/or Jet Ski, albeit the Jet Ski option will most likely leave you wishing you had a boat... We visit the island on a monthly basis with friends and can honestly say that the best time to visit is between 0700hrs and 1300hrs. Why? Simply because the island turns... More

seriously.. I'd rather pay and travel anywhere than to just go there and stare at other people's boats that are staring back ... the island is nothing but and empty piece of land and there isn't much to do there.... what the hell

I went several times on diving trips, there's not too much to see or to do. If you are on a speed boat, it takes about 45 minutes to get in there.....jump in the water, enjoy diving and come back. That is it.
