We really enjoyed our trip to this beautiful island. The food was lovely and we went out and snorkelled off the beach and then out further on a boat trip. Would recommend this to couples.

What a beautiful retreat. We booked our trip through GetYourGuide.com which included hotel transfers, snorkelling, sunbeds and lunch on the beach. Although there were a few boats there, neither the beach nor the sea were overcrowded. A lovely way to spend a relaxing day on a white sandy beach and crystal clear seas. Highly recommended.

Beautiful island lots of snorkelling which was great even for total beginners. Coral is fantastic staff were very very helpful. Sea was so clear you could see everything. Island was beautiful but very sparse. But that was what I expected

Had good experience on this trip although could not get off boat to go to island due to wife's disability. Crew looked after us very well though and it was a great experience

Awsome location to chill on the beach, swim in the crystal clear water and snorkle along the beach. Visited the island with a certified tour operator. Lunch and drink included. Had a fun afternoon!
