I had the chance to visit this amazing place on a boat trip from Makadi Bay. This is by far one of the best trips I have been on whilst on vacation. We firstly had 3 boat stops before reaching the island, we were able to snorkel and see the beautiful coral reefs. Also had the chance to see dolphins!... More

We booked our trip through Mahmaya Tours - they have lots of boats and ours was immaculate from start to finish! I highly recommend them as they take you to the beach used just by them. Amazing .. it was like stepping onto a Caribbean Island .. turquoise water, white sand, not as crowded as other beaches there & plenty... More

Simply, one of the most beautiful places i have ever been to. Saw Dolphins on the boat ride out & then went snorkeling by the coral. The coral was simply breathtaking. I saw a giant ray down there & the colours were mindblowing. I am not articulate enough to do it justice here, it was simply a place i could... More

Loved it so much we wanted to stay the night. In fact they should really consider a 24 hour stay on the island. snorkelling off the beach was lovely but the trip to the reef for was utterly breath taking . The inclusive buffet lunch was excellent & drinks really reasonably priced. We can 100% recommend this trip

Saw wild dolphins as we approached in the boat. A beautiiful island feeling like paradise. Nice food at the restaurant, clean bathroom facilities & plenty of shade on the beach. The water was so clear & peaceful. Stunning.
