Crowded with tourists, swimmers, snorkelers and boats. Clear sea water and sandy beach worth a visit but nothing to wow about.

White sand, emerald green sea... Perfect place to relax. Not a lot of shade so go prepared with suncream! This was the first island on our day trip so not too busy in the morning.

too many people, too many tourist , no shades. make sure you bring sun screen. it think its better if you go early, we went around 2 /3 pm and it was so crowded... we decided to go back to our hotel after 30 min. if your hotel doesnt have a nice beach its a good place to go.

The view's are beautiful, but the sea is has srtong swell here. Advise to go in the morning. You have to pay 200THB per person to enter here, paid in maya bay too, the ticket goes for both island, because they are natural reserve

Not sure what all the fuss was about really. It is a cool island but we didn't really spend too long here. The beach and trees are nice but the scenery was better elsewhere for us.

The official here trying to rip off the visiters. We forced to pay 200 bath person although we mention we know the price is 100 bath per person. Very rude official shouting at us asking for money. Never go back again.
