This island actually good for snorkeling and banana boat, though the coral is not in a good condition, but there were still so many big fish you can find underneath, but I rather disappointing to see the cottage and thrash everywhere, very sad to see such a promising island isn't maintained

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,

Looked to go to the island for the day after realising the prices were overpriced. The owner spoke to us telling us to come to the port to go to the island at 8am, we had to wait until 11 before leaving as they wait to fill up the boat. We left annoyed as the boat to come back would... More
