We been there for a day trip. Best place to snorkel. As name says it is a hide away island. Very quite and peaceful. We had lunch over there and had a nap under trees and then did snorkelling for rest of the day. U pay small entry fee for the island but it's worth it.

You want to snorkeling, just get there. You can send you postal card back home in the sea paradise, the fishes will accompany you to post your card.

Really, there's not much to do when you get there. Bit like the end of the road. Food i OK, drinks cool, water clean.
