literally! like a tsunami did hit the island. But this one was a tsunami of anger. The main building and restaurant burned down. The bungalows are completely demolished. It is all gone. What a petty!

One hour trip from the harbor. This island was beautiful. White sand, and good view. The electricity was shut down at noon, and if you are going to stay here, don't forget to bring your own drink water. The hotel did not served not so many free drink water here,
