However, it was packed but as the island is spacious- it felt like the crowds were quite spread out (unlike Maya Bay). The water is clear, warm (beware of a lot of stones) and clean. I truly recommend this place! Just wish I rich enough to own... More

Crystal clear and not as touristy, was taken here before they took us to Maya Bay.. highlight of our trip. I was given some bread by a boat guy next to me so I could feed the fish.
